RPC-XXX in containment.

Registered Phenomena Code: XXX

Object Class: Alpha-Yellow

Hazards: Contact Hazard, Ideological Hazard.

Containment Protocols: RPC-XXX is to be stored in 1x0.5x0.15 meter standard Alpha-class containment box. It can only be removed from containment for testing with approval of the Site Director of Site ██. No individuals professing the Muslim faith are to enter the object's storage or test areas at any time, excluding D-Class personnel for testing purposes. When not intentionally attempting to trigger it's effects, RPC-XXX is to be held by a 5cm tall plastic cover over the hilt.

Description: RPC-XXX is a sword with a steel blade and pummel and a wooden hilt. It appears indistinctive from swords used by the Knights Templar in the 12th century Second Crusade. It weighs 1.1 kg, and it's full length is 90 cm, with a 75 cm long blade. The blade is sharp and is immune to rust. Carbon dating shows that it was created in the 12th century.

It's anomalous effects manifest whenever any human holds the hilt of the weapon in his hand. The anomaly can't be triggered by non-humans or corpses. Exposed subject (hereafter referred to as RPC-XXX-1) expresses strong religious beliefs consistent with 12th century Catholicism. Exposed subjects gain the ability to identify a human as a Muslim on sight with 100% accuracy, and react to them extremely aggressively, attempting to attack and terminate them with SCP-XXX. Subjects appear to be very skilled with the weapon when using it against Muslims, practicing combat techniques similar to those used by the Knights Templar during the Crusades. This effect doesn't apply to any other non-anomalous weapons, or against non-Muslim targets. Subjects will also attempt to spread their medieval Catholic religion and Islamic hostility to any non-Muslims they encounter by preaching to them in Medieval Latin, with a ██% chance of success to turn them into another instance of RPC-XXX-1. All other aspects of RPC-XXX-1, such as their behaviour and personality remain the same.

If the subject exposed professes a Muslim faith, the subject is [DATA EXPUNGED].

Addendum: RPC-XXX was discovered in ██/██/██ when an instance of RPC-XXX-1 attacked a Muslim Mosque in ██████████, killing ██ people until apprehended by local authorities. When the object was confiscated from this instance, another instance of RPC-XXX-1 was created. Eventually the Authority received information about this incident from a Foundation informant in the local police department, and Agents ███████, █████ and ██████ were dispatched to retrieve the object and detain all instances of RPC-XXX-1.
