RPC-109-1’s infected shadow (Picture taken by CCTV during Containment Breach-2A)

Registered Phenomena Code: 109

Object Class: Beta-Orange

Hazard Types: Anti-Physical Hazard, Sentient Hazard, Animated Hazard, Aggression Hazard

Containment Protocols: RPC-109’s host is to be contained in a reinforced steel cylindrical building, with a radius and height of 2m. This building is located approximately ███m from Krasnoyarsk Krai, Russia and is to be maintained by On-Site staff. No human activity or motion should occur within 1km of RPC-109’s containment, excluding RPC-109’s entrance. The entrance to RPC-109’s containment is a small rectangular room that can be moved to RPC-109’s containment chamber by remote control. This entrance will hereby be referred to as the "Rat Trap". Lights within RPC-109’s containment cell and the Rat Trap are to remain active at all times, and are to be linked to at least three backup generators in the event of a Containment Breach.

RPC-109’s host is to be strapped to a medical bed within their containment by their appendages at all times. RPC-109’s host is to be kept awake for periods of at least one week. RPC-109’s host should be allowed to sleep for only six hours in between weekly periods of unrest. RPC-109-1’s nutrition is to be administered through IV, alongside stimulants and anti-hypnotic drugs. RPC-109-1 is to be monitored for any changes in life signs. Changes in RPC-109-1 life signs should be reported immediately to a member of On-Site Level 3+ personnel.

In the event of RPC-109-1's imminent expiration, a member of Class D personnel is to be sent into the Rat Trap alone. RPC-109-1 should promptly be terminated with the use of a remotely administered potassium chloride lethal injection. At this time Halothane vapour (sleeping gas) should be released into the Rat Trap to render the member of Class D personnel unconscious. Medical Personnel are to enter the ''Rat Trap'' with protective gear and prepare them to take the place of RPC-109-1. The D-Class personnel in question will hereafter be referred to as RPC-109-1.

Description: RPC-109 is a shadow-like parasitic, mind-altering anomaly with the appearance of a distorted, smoke-like humanoid with a stags skull and antlers. These features prolong and shorten, depending on the position of the moon in the sky. RPC-109 will seek out a human shadow to infect. RPC-109 infects shadows by making physical contact with them, causing him to absorb into the shadow instantaneously. Any human infected by RPC-109 is to be referred to as RPC-109-01.

RPC-109's anomalous effects begin to manifest at any time from five minutes to five hours after infection. RPC-109-1 will then begin to experience cognitive effects that will persist for anywhere from ten hours to three months'. These cognitive effects will persist until RPC-109-1’s termination. During this time, RPC-109-1's shadow will slowly begin to resemble RPC-109. Symptoms of RPC-109’s infection typically begin as mild depression and will progress into severe depression to the point where RPC-109-1 will frequently attempt conscious or unconscious suicide. Testing has revealed that RPC-109's effects act faster while RPC-109-1 is in an unconscious state. If RPC-109-1 is incapable of committing suicide, RPC-109 will begin altering RPC-109-1 subconsciously until all bodily functions cease.

RPC-109 can only leave RPC-109-1 when RPC-109-1 expires. When RPC-109-1 expires, RPC-109 will attempt to infect the closest human shadow within 500m radius. If RPC-109-1 expires in an area 500 meters away from a source of light and a huma shadow, RPC-109 will materialize. RPC-109 will proceed to hunt for a human shadow. If RPC-109 finds a life form without a shadow during this time, RPC-109 will proceed to violently rip flesh from their body at random, before consuming their cranium. It is noteworthy that RPC-109 will not rip flesh from the cranium during its rage. RPC-109 is reported to be incredibly aggressive during this time and has a strong physical form, cited to be able to bash through reinforced steel with ease.
