Item #: RPC-866

Object Class: Alpha

Containment Protocols: The waters surrounding RPC-866's location must be blocked from public access at all times. RPC-866 is to be fed 2 liters of nutritional material every 12 hours. Under no circumstances are personnel to directly approach RPC-866.

Instances of RPC-866-1 must be kept under constant medical supervision. Instances of RPC-866-1 are to remain under intravenous administration of vital nutrients.

Description: RPC-866 is an approximately 140 meter long mass of biological material that resembles a member of the genus Holothuria1. RPC-866 possesses notable deviations from the anatomy of a non-anomalous Holothurian. RPC-866 ingests material and expels waste through a large orifice present on the front of its body. This organ is anatomically similar to a human cervix, with several rows of human teeth present on the inner layer of the organ. The organ will periodically contract during consumption of prey. RPC-866 uses a set of eight appendages to ensnare and consume prey. RPC-866 will discard any non-biological material from the organ after consumption.

Biological material ingested by RPC-866 will be kept alive within RPC-866. RPC-866 utilizes a variety of chemical and physical processes to modify the physical appearance of consumed organisms.
RPC-866 will repeatedly ingest and regurgitate consumed biological material until the organisms superficially resemble non-anomalous instances of Actinopyga echinites2. Organisms consumed by RPC-866 upon complete transformation are now designated RPC-866-1. The process was first observed upon discovery of RPC-866.

RPC-866 will act towards RPC-866-1 in a protective manner, assuming the role of providing nutrition to the instances facilitated through regurgitation. Instances of RPC-866-1 display limited biological function, and are incapable of functioning independently from RPC-866. Instances of RPC-866-1 will typically die of malnutrition within 48 hours of creation. RPC-866 will provide sustenance for instances of RPC-866-1 that remain within the vicinity, however RPC-866 will eventually consume the RPC-866-1 due to its inability to distinguish them from prey. RPC-866 is sentient, and is capable of basic problem solving despite the absence of complex sensory functions.

RPC-866 was discovered on a small island in the Pacific Ocean following the disappearance of a cruise liner in the area.
