Site-26 was constructed around SCP-2095, preventing access and enclosing it from view. Site-26 has been disguised as a weather observatory
and agents within the Greek government are to ensure that the site is publicly viewed
as such. Description: SCP-2095 is a primarily subterranean
temple complex located at Gyaros, an arid and uninhabited Greek island in the Aegean
Sea. Structure predates previously known archaeological
sites on the island. Inscriptions found within have included Cretan
hieroglyphs, Linear A, Hittite Cuneiform, and a previously unknown writing system composed
of spiral-shaped glyphs varying in complexity. SCP-2095 is composed of entirely biological
material and is believed to have once been a living organism. Samples taken from SCP-2095 have revealed
bone, chitin, muscle, adipose and viscera. Radiocarbon dating has placed the subject’s
death at cal 1200–1000 BCE (1σ) with soft tissue having undergone a form of embalmment. Chambers are connected together via tunnels
which are structurally and cellularly similar to the inner lining of the human intestinal
tract. Large sphincters appear to have served as
doors and are permanently relaxed. These portals would have likely been able
to open and close as needed pre-mortem. The largest room contains an altar composed
of bone, a component of the SCP-2095 organism. Forensic evidence suggests that it was used
in a sacrificial manner. It is believed possible that living sacrifices
provided SCP-2095 with the nutrients necessary for its survival and the floor itself shows
signs of acidic corrosion. The base of the altar has been carved into
an Ouroboros, believed to be a symbol of religious importance to the creators of SCP-2095. Twenty-nine scrolls were discovered within
the northern most chamber of SCP-2095. Only four were found to be written in Hittite
Cuneiform while the rest remain undecipherable. Of those four, three are considered to be
of a spiritual/philosophical nature while one appears to be an inventory report. Foundation archaeologists have found evidence
of warfare throughout the island. This has included skeletal remains depicting
likely anomalous causes for death such as implosion, internal combustion, disintegration,
radiation poisoning, and fatal physical reconfiguration. The Foundation became aware of SCP-2095 after
reports of a “cathedral of bone” being discovered by a team of Greek archaeologists who had
been studying a large mound on the isle of Gyaros. Class-B Amnestics were administered and the
archaeologists were returned to the general population. SCP-2095 was easily secured and construction
of Reliquary Site-26 was completed by 12/09/1949. Resources: [illegible] 1340 slaves – 10 surrendered at the Shrine
of Consumption when the Black Moon holds dominion over the Heavens 12 biltu of gold, pure 1200 goats 300 pigs [fragment missing] Our Sacred Legion: 3000 Adytite faithful 500 Thracian faithful, including 12 [“storm-beasts”?] 2000 Urartu [“converts”/”conscripts”?] 400 Sardinian mercenaries 250 Kaskian faithful 100 Caphtor conspirators – can their loyalty
be trusted when they so easily betrayed their own? 300 Mycenaean mercenaries Armory: 2550 bone-crafted blades and shields 2000 bone-crafted bows 10,000 bone-crafted arrows, poisoned with
hellebore and venom of adder 60 amphora of [illegible] 200 amphora of “liquid fire” 20 “curse tablets” – placed around perimeter
of island 1 amphora of “Red Death” SCROLL I The Wound, cut from the flesh of totality
– deep, it severed the line of future and past. Drawn to its ancient fester, gods swarmed
as flies to a corpse. We waited within bloodless veins, faithful
to that which we could not know – unable to imagine that we might become their greater. Here, we slept – until our souls became flesh. Sone Alku SCROLL II [heavily stained; paragraph illegible] The swineherd prostrated himself before the
Sorcerer-King and asked, “Great Sorcerer-King and Ozi̮rmok, Heart of Man and Light of Lights. I speak for the folk of the cold-marsh. We fear the red lanterns that dance without
harmony; our spirit-guides warn of ill omens.” And Ion did assure the man, “I have gazed
upon the Faceless Ones, servitors of His Undulating Vastness. Their chief is blind – castrated by our words
and will. He sings songs of anarchy but they will not
come again. These terrible spirits do not deserve our
love; render unto them no sacrifice until the stars have aligned.” Sone Vith SCROLL III And to his flock, Ion thus spoke: “I have
stepped beyond the Floe of Dreams; stood before the Old Ones within their own desolate domain. I have endured their intolerable force, across
countless eons. I have seen the infinite dead worlds, murdered
death herself. I have read the entrails of our Creator, beheld
eternity unfurled. Know that our paradise draws near. And with our own flesh shall we birth it. Sone Skaal Addendum: On 05/24/2014, an earthquake occurred
in the Aegean Sea. Reliquary Site-26 was unharmed, as were the
anomalous objects retained within since its construction. SCP-2095 did however suffer some structural
damage but proved to be a serendipitous event. A hitherto unknown sphincter, sealed and hidden
through calcification, had ruptured open within the altar chamber. Exploration of the chamber led to the discovery
of the body of a human male. Individual has shown no signs of decay and
although lacking a detectable heartbeat, EEG scans have revealed low-level brain activity. Research into the subject and its relationship
with SCP-2095 is currently ongoing. Found inside was a single well-preserved scroll,
strewn carelessly and likely never meant to be contained within. Deduced to be a letter, it is believed to
have been written by the ruling authority at SCP-2095 but had been unsent, possibly
due to events directly referenced within. The document has been translated and is now
accessible for viewing by Foundation personnel: Grand Karcist Ion, May this missive find you at Kythera, for
it shall be my last. Our enemies have begun their assault on the
island but we have completed the Rite of Preservation. The Temple will sleep and await Resurrection
by the Children of Adytum. The Fallen Kingdoms and Followers of Mekhane
have united against us, even as their nations crumble. Still, they have transmuted our every victory
in the region to that of defeat, even as their own fates are sealed. The Bleeding Heart is our last stronghold
in the Aegean Sea but no doubt our Eastern Domain remains strong under your eternal gaze. The Wounds sustained today will heal – into
the ages of ages, we are undying. Their victory here shall be hollow. Karcist Meksa has claimed their Profane Instruments
and sails for Kythera as I write this. I vow that none are to leave this island alive. May their names be obliterated and their flesh
consumed. We summon the Red Death. For the blood of heathens, we sacrifice ourselves. We will meet again in Adytum. I remain,
Karcist Tundas
