Object Class: Safe
Special Containment Procedures: All instances of SCP-586-JP are to be stored in Low-Risk Object Storage Units at Storage Site-8123. Inactivated SCP-586-JP-A instances are to be stored in Cryogenic Storage Units at said Site. On testing of SCP-586-JP, the priority is given to the establishment of communication with SCP-586-JP-A instances. Testing involving the breakage or physical impact against SCP-586-JP requires the approval of 2 Security Clearance Level-3 or above personnel. In case an incident possible related to new SCP-558-JP instances is reported to the law enforcement, investigation is to be handed over to Foundation agents.
Description: SCP-586-JP is a small snow globe. Currently 6 instances of SCP-586-JP are in Foundation custody, designated SCP-586-JP-1 to -6. Inside of SCP-586-JP has been filled by transparent liquid, which is presumed to be an unknown component. Said liquid is assumed to serve as a method to maintain the active state of SCP-586-JP-A instance; studies have been stagnant as the liquid is immediately vaporized upon the breakage of SCP-586-JP's glass. While the interior decoration of SCP-586-JP are vary, an instance of SCP-586-JP-A is present in common.
SCP-586-JP-A instances are small humanoid entities that have appearance of 4 to 12-years-old children wearing winter clothes. All SCP-586-JP-A instances are sapient, and capable of autonomous movement. SCP-586-JP-A instances require no feeding, and recover its external injures at anomalously rapid rate. If SCP-586-JP is shaken or applied with external impact, SCP-586-JP-A is similarly affected, and may be crashed into decorations or glass dome in case the impact is violent. While SCP-586-JP-A displays extreme distress upon the crash, it does not be externally damaged due to above-mentioned rapid recovery.
SCP-586-JP-A is incapable of perceive the external environment of SCP-586-JP, and all communications from outside have been unsuccessful to date. Breakage attempt of glass to remove SCP-586-JP-A caused the vaporization of internal liquid and the inactivation of SCP-586-JP-A. Autopsy of removed SCP-586-JP-A has shown that it has an identical internal body structures to non-anomalous human.
All instances of SCP-586-JP-A have had identical appearance to specific children who mysteriously disappeared in various countries. Currently, identities of all instances have been confirmed.
The following is summary of SCP-586-JP instances and corresponding SCP-586-JP-A instances.
|Designations of SCP-586-JP and internal SCP-586-JP-A||Brief history of SCP-586-JP-A||Internal decorations||Current status of SCP-586-JP-A|
|SCP-586-JP-1, SCP-586-JP-A-1||4-years-old male. From [REDACTED] of Brasil.||A miniature model of coniferous tree.||Inert. Mostly spends lying down.|
|SCP-586-JP-2, SCP-586-JP-A-2||7-years-old female. From [REDACTED] of China.||A miniature of wooden house typical of subarctic zones; the miniature has no entrance.||Inert. Mostly spends sitting on ground grasping its knees.|
|SCP-586-JP-3, SCP-586-JP-A-3||10-years-old male. From [REDACTED] of Egypt.||Simple miniatures of a house with chimney, and two coniferous trees.||Inactivated upon the breakage of SCP-586-JP-3 during testing.|
|SCP-586-JP-4, SCP-586-JP-A-4||12-years-old male. From the State of ███████, USA.||Miniatures of various tools are scattered.||Inactivated. SCP-586-JP-4 was already broken upon discovery.|
|SCP-586-JP-5, SCP-586-JP-A-5||12-years-old female. From the State of █████ █████, USA.||Miniatures of various tools are scattered. Glass dome is thicker than previous instances.||Inert. While mostly spends lying down, sometimes weakly tries to break glass of SCP-586-JP-5 with tools.|
|SCP-586-JP-6, SCP-586-JP-A-6||9-years-old male. From ███████ Prefecture of Japan.||A small, active organism that has an identical appearance to polar bear (Ursus maritimus).||[REDACTED]|
Discovery Log: SCP-586-JP-1 to -3 were recovered on 201█/01/08, when Foundation agents intercepted a civilian report about "living people in snow globes" which was found in Mt. ████████, Hokkaido. Said civilian was administered amnesiac after the interview. On 04/06 in the same year, the existence of "miniature corpse in a snow globe" was reported from [REDACTED] forest of Chiba Prefecture, and SCP-586-JP-4 was recovered. Following these incidents, SCP-586-JP-5 was recovered from [REDACTED] of Kumamoto Prefecture on 07/10, and SCP-586-JP-6 was recovered from Mt. ███████ of Yamagata Prefecture on 10/24.
All instances of SCP-586-JP were initially contained in a cardboard box with an attached B5-Size copy paper, written as "Waste; Past the Seell-By Date" [sic] by permanent marker. In this light, it has believed that SCP-586-JP instances were made and disposed by unknown individual. Investigation and search about said individual by Foundation are ongoing.
