Hunger Engine

Item #: RPC-X

Object Class: Beta-Purple

Hazard Types: Contact Hazard, Sensory Hazard, Cognito Hazard

Containment Protocols: RPC-X is to be secured in a locked room constructed on site at all times. Room access requires authorization by level 3 personnel. A 12 kilometer perimeter is to be maintained at all times with no less than 3 guards patrolling 24 hours a day. perimeter is primarily maintained by an electric fence and automated turrets loaded with 9mm hollow point rounds to be reloaded once daily.

Description: RPC-X appears to be a 15.24x22.86cm book currently open to its 3rd and 4th page which are blank. At this time it is unknown what, if anything, is depicted on its binding or cover. The material around the edges of the covers appears to be red denim, but so far testing or close examination of the material has not proven possible. RPC-X was discovered in a small derelict mining town called ███████ Located approximately 84 Kilometers north of █████, Nevada. Initial reports contained satellite imagery of unidentifiable organic masses possessing limbs and proportions that do not match current biological records.

RPC-X causes anyone who approaches within approximately 10 cubic meters to be drawn to it by various means ranging from a simple compulsion to a complete loss of direction and understanding of physical location. Once physical contact with RPC-X has been made physical changes begin to take place immediately. The types and degree of change vary wildly and seem to relate to the subjects current biomass (See test log for further details). At this point subjects can be considered RCP-X-1. All subjects begin to feel hunger immediately, and seem unable to resist seeking out and begging for food within the first 15 minutes (See incident log for further details). After The food seeking behavior begins within roughly 30 minutes language faculties begin to break down, and if no biomass becomes available for consumption subjects expire within no longer than 2 hours. Upon expiry subjects immediately desiccate, and posthumous examination of the corpse reveals their biomass to have been converted into homogeneous matter appearing to consist entirely of intestinal tissue and keratin. If biomass is provided, or desiccated remains of RCP-X-1 are available physical alterations continue and time before expiry of RCP-X-1 increases by roughly 20 minutes per kilogram of biomass consumed. RCP-x-1 appears unable to eat more than what the original subject would have been able to unless severe physical alterations have already taken place.

If biomass is left uneaten after sustaining physical contact with RCP-X-1 it begins to undergo physical alterations that invariably result in three things:

  1. the ability to locomote in some fashion, with a preference for wings at weights below 3 kilograms
  2. an orifice for consumption
  3. a set of seemingly random sensory organs

These creatures will be classified as RCP-X-2. RCP-X-2 is unable to creature further instances of RCP-X-1 or 2. RCP-X-1 Appears to be able to consume RCP-X-2 and inherit its physical traits. -Further testing is required.
No further testing on RCP-X, X-1, X-2, or X-3 will be authorized. Only a single instance of RCP-X-3 has been created so far and hopefully will remain the only instance created ever (see logs for futher details). RCP-X-3 emerged after several weeks of feeding an instance of RCP-X-1 as much biomass as it could consume. Physical alterations at this point had rendered the creature large and seemingly immobile weighing in excess of 2200 kilograms. RCP-X-3 appeared to be a large, vaugely humanoid, legless, creature consisting mostly of what appeared to be a fatty substance below an over sized and misshapen head. We began to consider it RCP-x-3 when it became apparent that it could direct and control other X-1 and X-2 instances. RCP-X-3 also had a rudimentary grasp of language and was responsive to questioning (see interview log for further details). RCP-x-3 is capable of reusing and discarding traits gained from RCP-X-2
