Item#: 6341
Containment Class:
Secondary Class:
Disruption Class:
Risk Class:

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-6241 is to be kept in Site-███. No individual with a clearance at or lower than level II should be in SCP-6241's containment cell block alone. No personnel with clearance level lower than level III is to test on specimen. There must be at least two (2) level III cleared personnel during testing to monitor specimen which only then is a D-Class unit allowed access. Special hazardous material suits must be worn at all times within proximity of SCP-6241; D-Class may be excluded from wearing hazmat suit.

The specimen is to be kept in a liquid containment unit at all times. The solution within consists of cryogenic liquid perfluorocarbon (PFC). A constant reservoir of power and liquid ventilation is to be kept supplying SCP-6241's containment unit. PFC must be kept at -47*C/-52.6*F to keep SCP-6241 in stasis and sustainment of life. Special hazardous material suits must be worn by any individual entering SCP-6241's containment cell block.

Description: SCP-6241 is commonly referred to as The Wire because it resembles a broken strip of barbed wire or ruined electrical wiring. It was discovered by a young farmer in United States, North Dakota after the specimen had out to 3 out of 5 individuals of their family.

The specimen; however, is composed mostly of organic materials such as copper. It is unknown if more exist, but probable. Its origin is also unknown. This specimen is remarkably light, weighing at only 4.89 Kg, considering its massive size at a 8.32 meters in diameter. The anomaly has a head resembling a deformed human skull with five tendrils that appear to be loosely attached to the skull and other tendrils. Despite the frail appearance of this specimen, it is actually quite strong and agile.

The specimen's tendrils constantly percolate a strange substance in which its compound is mainly unknown. However, observations indicate that it contains a violent neurotoxin which renders a subject paralyzed within an hour with death following quickly upon contact with skin. Further testing reveals that SPC-6241's percolating substances can rapidly form skin and blood cancer if neurotoxin is not effective. This rapid formation of cancer quickly decays a living █████ ████ within a week, leaving only skeletal remains. Potential in SCP-6241's percolate regarding the containment of other SCPs.

Each of the specimen's tendrils contain thousands of small, barbed setules resembling an arachne's leg. This allows the specimen to move almost anywhere it pleases, much like an arachnid. The specimen's tendrils appear to be made of a light but durable form of fibrous structural proteins, which appear to be slightly sharpened to form something resembling an organic blade. Due to how light the specimen is and its anatomical structure, it could potentially float along winds depending on weather conditions.

The tendrils themselves, without percolate, are quite dangerous as well. Capable of suctioning to ceilings, it has been observed to see the entity suffocate individuals via. hanging, or binding over an individual's external respiratory system. In other cases, the specimen has been observed to slash at a victim's throat.

Recovery Log: Subject was discovered on (5/7/2020) in North Dakota by local family, whom of which consisted of three fatalities resulting from SCP-6412. Call to local authorities were intercepted by foundation officials, where a team consisting of six foundation personnel were dispatched on a mission to recover special package. Team Codename: ███████
Approximately a week of tracking and four foundation-related fatalities, subject was captured via. ██████ by team leader Sgt. █████ W. ████████. Entity transported to ████ ████, and finally contained at Site-███.
