|~ The SCP Foundation's unofficial motto.|
The Secure Containment Procedures Foundation, abbreviated SCP Foundation, is an organization dedicated to the apprehension and containment of anomalies, ranging from creatures to objects, locations, and events, known as "SCPs".
The organization is overall dedicated to understanding anomalous occurrences and permanently incarcerating them so that they are kept away from humanity, whether it is for the SCP's safety from society or vice versa.
The Foundation captures and contains all abnormal occurrences, whether they are threatening or not. Every SCP is experimented upon, and tests are conducted on them on a daily basis.
The SCP Foundation employs D-Class personnel made up of prison inmates, usually the ones on death row. These inmates are used for interaction with the SCPs and their containment, servants, and workers for foundation higher-ups, human testing, and occasionally are used to feed or appease SCPs.
The testing done on D-Class personnel ranges from experimenting with their exposure to dangerous SCPs to using their bodies for feeding, containment, and experimentation depending on the SCP encountered.
The Foundation also consists of hundreds of doctors, scientists, researchers, and military agents. Researchers and scientists experiment on SCPs and D-Class personnel, and the military is used to secure, combat, or capture the abnormalities.
When an SCP is set for capture, the Foundation must ensure there are no civilian witnesses to the apprehension. Military agents are required to neutralize all potential threats to the organization's secret existence, including civilian bystanders and witnesses.
The Foundation is well known for its compartmentalization of information and Security Clearance Levels for its personnel. Level 0 Clearance is the lowest, while Level 5 Clearance is the highest. Th Foundation is very strict with its need-to-know policies, and sensitive information about anomalies and procedures are often redacted for lower Security Clearance-personnel. Trying to forcefully get access to sensitive information leads often to disciplinary action by the higher-ups.
The Foundation is ready to go to extreme lengths to ensure the survival of the human race, such as Procedure 110-Montauk.
Ranks and Structure
Usually, the SCP-Foundation is led by the Overseer Council aka the O5-Council. The O-5 Council consists of usually 13 people who are often only defined as O5-1 through O5-13. The O5-council have unlimited access to all files and reports without any data expunged or redacted. The Council usually decides major decision with anomalies that have existential threats to humanity or the universe at large but can influence anything. It is often speculated that O5's might be anomalous themselves.
The 'Ethics Committee also wields a lot of power inside the Foundation. Most personnel considers the Ethics Committee as joke or myth, but in reality, the leaders of this Committee are described to have the same power as the O5's. They hide in plain sight and apparently have some authority over the O5-Council. The Committee decides what is ethically acceptable for the Foundation to do in their mission statement. Example: In one canon they designed the infamous Procedure 110-Montauk. Most of this version of the Committee comes from the story Ethics Committee Orientation.
Site-Directors are high-ranking researchers that lead the different containment-sites around the world. They often have Assistant Directors of different expertise that assist them inside the facilities. Site-Directors are also usually the highest ranking officials who still have a full name and not a numeric designation like with the O5-Council.
Mobile Task Forces
Mobile Task Forces, or MTF's, are the Foundation's most effective and skilled personnel. They can be anything from scientists and researchers to Elite Special Forces Soldiers (The most common variant used in stories or media about the SCP-Universe). Mobile Task Forces are, as the name suggests, mobile and can operate on either Containment-Sites or in the Field. They usually deal with the most dangerous anomalies, where the more common field and recovery agents might lack knowledge or training. MTF's often also have specialties: Example: MTF Mu-4 ("Debuggers") is specified in tracking anomalous electronic devices, technology, and transmission, and either try to contain or block them. The most famous/infamous Mobile Task Force is MTF Alpha-1 ("Red Right Hand"), who consist of the Foundations best and loyal operatives and employees. Despite this MTF Alpha-1 is often connected to the creation of the Chaos Insurgency, a rival organization that seeks to destroy the Foundation.
The Researchers are Doctors and Scientists that research on the anomalies. Their duties can vary from experimentation on the anomalies to developing Special Containment Procedures. Security clearances and ranks also vary from simple Research Assistants to Site-Directors and everything in between. The expertise of researchers can vary from different scientific fields like technology to zoology or different anomalous field. Example for the ladder is that Dr. Judith Low is specialized with anomalies that relate to Grand Karcist Ion and his following, Sarkicism.
While literally thousands of SCPs have been contained by the Foundation, there are several notable ones that are popularly associated with the Foundation. It should be noted that all of these SCPs are contained by the Foundation and are not affiliated with the Foundation's personnel.
- SCP-049: An immortal plague doctor who uses a mysterious treatment on human subjects that render them as brain-dead and hostile zombies.
- SCP-087: An endless staircase going down that contains a humanoid figure, SCP-087-1. The constant sound of crying can be heard deep within SCP-087.
- SCP-096: A tall, pale, humanoid that will kill anyone or anything that sees its face. It is indestructible and unstoppable when enraged.
- SCP-106: An elderly humanoid with the ability to pass through any material and create pocket dimensions at any time.
- SCP-173: One of the first SCPs, SCP-173 is a statue-like creature that cannot move when in direct eyesight, but can move unfathomably fast when looked away from. It will kill anything it can by breaking the neck.
- SCP-682: An indestructible reptilian monster with a hatred for humanity and a desire for all of it to be wiped out.
The SCP Foundation employs thousands of people such as researchers, agents, and guards. The work these individuals perform is often morally controversial in nature (such as D-Class Personnel and Procedure 110-Montauk); however, the work is always meant to protect mankind and preserve normality.
SCP - Containment Breach
The Foundation is the driving force behind the video game SCP - Containment Breach, based on the SCP mythos. Located in one of the site buildings/prisons, the player plays a member of the D-Class personnel trying to escape when a containment breach releases dozens of hostile SCPs.
SCP - Containment Breach (Unity Remake)
On October 14, 2016, a group of developers remade SCP - Containment Breach by upgrading the graphics and adding a number of new SCPs. The game itself has the same goal as the original, but an ending has yet to be developed.
- The SCP Foundation currently has four known "series" of SCPs: Series I contains SCP-001 through SCP-999, Series II contains SCP-1000 through SCP-1999, Series III contains SCP-2000 through SCP-2999, and Series IV contains SCP-3000 through SCP-3999.
- The SCP Foundation's main enemies outside of the SCPs include the Chaos Insurgency, Serpent's Hand, and Church of the Broken God.
- The SCP Foundation and the entire SCP mythos placed #14 on Tat's TopVideos' 2011 Top 22 Non-Gaming Creepypastas list and #18 on the 2014 Top 22 Non-Gaming Creepypastas list. Tat's TopVideos has since released many SCP related countdowns and is credited with helping to bring the SCP mythos to the popularity it has now.
