RPC-129-A through C, during their recovery.

Item #: RPC-129

Object Class: Beta

Containment Protocols: All instances of RPC-129 are to be kept in standard humanoid containment cells RPC-129-A is temporarily being held at Site-002 while adjustments are made to the dimensions of its holding cell to accommodate for its current size (see Incident 129-A). RPC-129-B and RPC-129-C are to be kept in specialized humanoid containment cells constructed entirely out of [REDACTED], due to its oligodynamic effect1. All cells housing RPC-129 instances must be sanitized hourly by on-site janitorial staff; all staff that come within designated "danger zones" (assigned to areas in close proximity to RPC-129 holding cells) are required to wear standard-issue Level A hazmat suits at all times. Any instruments brought into danger zones for the purposes of testing, sanitation, or otherwise, must be first decontaminated via the on-site autoclaves2.

Entry of any other living organisms into danger zones that are not approved Authority staff abiding by the containment protocols outlined above is strictly prohibited.

Description: RPC-129 designates three humanoid entities (instances RPC-129-A through C) recovered from a series of catacombs located beneath an unnamed freshwater body at the Snowdonia National Park in northwestern Wales. All instances of RPC-129 are around 1.82 m tall and are covered in dense hair (obscuring most of their bodies) that regenerates rapidly if cut or damaged. Despite multiple X-rays, nothing has been shown to be underneath the hair itself, while all measurements taken with non-contact infrared thermometers have shown that RPC-129 instances maintain a body temperature relatively close to that of the average human3. All infrared scans, however, have been inconclusive as instances appear to have wildly irregular internal thermoregulation. RPC-129 instances possess hands very much like that of primates, most similar to those of humans in appearance. All instances display a level of sapience on par with that of a human toddler4 and behave in a similar manner. Not long after their initial recovery had instances begun to speak and express a persistent desire to befriend Authority staff, commonly asking for hugs or other forms of affection. It is advised that staff heed any requests made by RPC-129 instances (within reason), in order to avoid emotional outbursts that have occurred and resulted in significant damage to containment cells when staff previously ignored instances' demands. All instances of RPC-129 are presumably self-sustaining, requiring no apparent forms of sustenance to maintain themselves.


Close up of RPC-129-A.

Any living organisms that make direct epidermal contact with RPC-129 instances results in what can be best described as the "assimilation" of the organism in question5. Once contact between the two is established, organisms seem to be "pulled into" RPC-129 instances. This process appears to cause considerable pain to the organism undergoing it, while instances of RPC-129 seem to be unaware of the implications of their actions nor the suffering they cause. Assimilation of an organism results in an increase in the height and weight of instances over a period of time that directly correlates with the size of what is assimilated.

Recovery Log: After numerous investigations into suspects believed to be related to a data breach in which confidential information was leaked from an Authority server, MST Sierra-17 ("Red-Tailed Hawks") was deployed to an isolated area of the Snowdonia National Park after it was determined to be the location of a prime suspect in the investigation, POI-3483. Upon being apprehended by Sierra-17, POI-3483 informed the unit of a series of catacombs that were located underneath a nearby body of water that contained "some dangerous shit," in his own words. An exploration of the catacombs resulted in the acquisition of RPC-129-A through C, as well as the discovery of a derelict subterranean research facility connected to the catacombs. Both POI-3483 and the recovered RPC-129 instances were transported to Site-███ without further incident.

Incident 129-A:

Addendum 129-1: An interview was conducted with POI-3483, where additional information concerning his involvement with RPC-129 was divulged.

Addendum 129-2: The RPC-129 recovery site, including the catacombs and adjacent laboratory, have been designated OL-Site-129. An Authority presence has been established at the location in order to research RPC-129 instances in their microbial stage, now designated RPC-129-α, and to prevent any instances of RPC-129 from growing any larger than 750 μm7 or greater; instances that reach such a size are to be terminated on sight.

Works in Progress


Texts that have been destroyed and lost to time take with it the knowledge scrawled upon it. The story of RPC-001 begins at a point in the past long forgotten. A settlement of early man, far more advanced than those we know of from their time, possesses knowledge of things almost arcane in nature. Many among them have become what is essentially an early form of the Authority, existing to contain things from their people that defy any and all explanation. One such anomaly, (insert idea for a prophet or prophetic item or text here), predicts that one day, "The sun will go black, the world will go dark, and mankind will be lost in the shadow cast." This end of the world scenario comes to pass in spite of the efforts of this "proto-Authority." And the world's most advanced people are lost to time, destroyed by themselves in the ensuing panic. Everything lost, to one of the world's first recorded solar eclipses. Cut to modern day. The RPC Authority, in its earlier stages, have known of this civilization. Many elaborate tunnels exist as the only remains of these forgotten people, along with the few things that survived the end of their civilization. Like Greek fire, there are many technologies these people have developed, which over the years, the Authority has studied and put to use; the most notable example of harnessing such such technology is that of the use of Extergito Glyphs. There comes a day, however, when the cipher the Authority had been working on for many years is finally complete. The language of these lost people can now be translated, albeit roughly. RPC-001 would be the translation of the text pertaining to the solar eclipse and the destruction it brought with it. Therefore, the article should be written in an odd manner, one that reads almost like a botched Google translation. Ideally, the idea of the article will be conveyed through disjointed and occasionally fragmented but still legible text.

Order Randomized:

Damascus steel - c. 300 BCE
Nepenthe - Unknown
The Lycurgus cup - 4th century BCE
Greek fire - c. 672 CE
The Antikythera mechanism - Earliest estimate: 200 BCE
Mithridate - 1st century BCE
Flexible glass (vitrum flexile) - Around 30 CE

Architectural designs resembling monuments present in Egypt's Giza pyramid complex, including the pyramids in question and the Great Sphinx, were found alongside other technical drawings such as [REDACTED], which for most of history were considered works of fiction.
