Containment Protocols:
RPC-XXX is to be contained at Site-002, in a tier three (3) secure humanoid containment unit with a bed, and is to be chained to the floor. Food, water, and other standard human provisions are not to be provided to RPC-XXX under any condition or pretense. RPC-XXX-1 is to be fitted with heavy rubber gloves at all times. Attempting to converse with RPC-XXX-1 instances is not permitted for any reason. Motion tracking infrared cameras are to have 24 hour supervision; and these cameras are to alert nearby security personnel should RPC-XXX enter an active state.

All personnel that regularly enter within 100 meters are to advised on proper evacuation routes and the locations of relevant PPE in Site-002.

In the event of a containment breach, a CSD is to be straight jacketed, chained to a bed and remotely rolled toward RPC-XXX. After RPC-XXX makes contact with the CSD and transference has occurred, the bed is to be rolled back into RPC-XXX's quarters. On-site security personnel wearing blinders, type IV rubber/neoprene PPE and armed with blowtorches are to then re-restrain RPC-XXX, repair damaged chain, and burn the prior host of RPC-XXX.

RPC-XXX is the designation given to an identity that is able to transfer between hosts if physical contact is made between a subject and RPC-XXX. Following contact, the prior host of RPC-XXX will collapse, and the new host will begin to convulse. Over the next 24-48 hours the new host of RPC-XXX will change in personality, activity level, and physical appearance. Following this time period the host will refuse to eat, drink, or be physically active; at this point RPC-XXX is considered to be fully in control of the host and the subject's physical body is designated RPC-XXX-1. RPC-XXX-1 will then seek out a room or building that is quiet, dark, and has small enclosed spaces. Upon locating such an environment, RPC-XXX will enter a hibernation state that may last between 4 to 8 months depending on the physical state of the host. Subjects that approach the area RPC-XXX-1 is in, or manage to observe RPC-XXX-1, either directly or indirectly (such as with a video camera), may experience feelings of uneasiness, dread, hunger, fatigue, and anxiety. These emotions will amplify as the subject approaches to RPC-XXX-1, or gets a clearer view of RPC-XXX-1.
The hibernation state will end if RPC-XXX-1 is disturbed, or if RPC-XXX-1 becomes morbidly malnourished. Upon waking up RPC-XXX will begin seeking out a new host. RPC-XXX typically obtains a new host by finding a residential area near it's prior hibernation location, and imitating a malnourished homeless person. This act typically entails asking for change or food from passerby in a location that is dimly lit and has nearby areas that are out of direct sightlines of pedestrians. RPC-XXX-1 will use speaking patterns and relevant details from their life prior to exposure to RPC-XXX to coax unsuspecting persons to isolated areas where a transference event will occur.

Visual observation of the corpse of the prior host (now designated RPC-XXX-2), invariably results in vivid hallucinations that have been described as horrific and frightening. These hallucinations have been known to last up to periods of several days and in some cases have had long lasting psychological effects. These hallucinations, along with traumatic and suicidal thoughts are also known to occur if a subject observes a transference event.
Camera footage taken during a transference event has proved that the subject does not need to make physical contact with RPC-XXX-1, only physical contact with RPC-XXX. Unaided visual observation of RPC-XXX is not possible, however infrared cameras and similar equipment is able to show five (5) high temperature claw-like protrusions from the finger and thumb on the right hand. These protrusions lengthen as RPC-XXX becomes more malnurished, and physical contact of these protrusions with solid objects other than a living human body will lead RPC-XXX-1 to hold their right hand at an awkward angle to avoid such contact. If physical contact with a nonhuman solid is physically forced then the protrusions will shorten in length, causing mild levels of pain to RPC-XXX-1. Upon making physical contact with a subject a high temperature humanoid entity can be seen wrapping the protrusions around the subject and violently stabbing one into the head of the subject. The subject will then display elevated temperatures at the fingertips of their right hand, and the humanoid entity will disappear from footage.

RPC-XXX has been discovered and contained multiple times over the last 230 years, but has only been in Authority containment since March 13th, 2004. Prior to Authority containment RPC-XXX lead to numerous deaths, disappearances, and suicides across Europe. Authority historians were able to identify RPC-XXX after finding common trends from writings made by priests, medical reports from Germany and France made prior to 1920, and police reports from Italy beginning in 1996. Information regarding RPC-XXX between the years 1921 and 1996 has not yet been recovered.
Using information gleaned from these reports MST Hotel-1 (Highlanders) were able to capture RPC-XXX in Medina. The operation resulted in RPC-XXX transferring to Sergeant Luceo with numerous other members observing the transference event. Shortly following containment, MST members from Hotel-1 began to commit suicide at alarming rates. Upon this occurrence, several members of Hotel-1 requested low grade amnestic treatment, which was granted. This treatment proved to be effective but was not made standard or conducted upon all members due to the inherent risks posed by amnestic drugs.

The following are excepts from recovered documents discovered by Authority Historians that lead to the operation to contain RPC-XXX. RPC-XXX.1 and RPC-XXX.2 are suspected to have been written between the early to mid 19th century, RPC-XXX.3 was written in June of 1996.
