RPC-029 in containment.

Registered Phenomena Code: 029

Object Class: Alpha-Yellow

Hazards: Contact Hazard, Ideological Hazard.

Containment Protocols: RPC-029 is to be stored in 100x50x15cm 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 its effects, RPC-029 is to be held by a 5cm tall plastic cover over the hilt.

Description: RPC-029 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 its 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. But despite its age, it shows no signs of wear and tear.

Its 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-029-1) 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 RPC-029. Subjects appear to be very skilled with the weapon when using it against Muslims, displaying 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-029-1. All other aspects of RPC-029-1, such as their behaviour and personality remain the same.

If the subject exposed professes a Muslim faith, the subject is [DATA EXPUNGED], which leads to their death.

Addendum: RPC-029 was discovered in ██/██/██ when an instance of RPC-029-1 attacked a Muslim Mosque in ██████████, England, killing ██ people until apprehended by local authorities. When the object was confiscated from this instance, another instance of RPC-029-1 was created. The new instance then proceeded to terminate a female Muslim that was present in the mosque attack and was being interviewed by a police investigator, as well as a Muslim Arabic-English interpreter. The new instance was then detained by his colleagues. 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 both instances of RPC-029-1.

Investigations into how the original instance of RPC-029-1 found the object are still ongoing.

Addendum-2: Authority historical research teams have connected RPC-029 with the Angels of Eden organization. It is theorized that during or before the Second Crusade, Pope Eugene III ordered the Angels of Eden to construct RPC-029 for use against the Saracens. It may have then been given to Everard des Barres, the Grand Master of the Knights Templar during the Second Crusade. Further investigation is required, and has been ordered by The Board.
