Registered Phenomena Code: 299

Object Class: Epsilon-Orange (AWAITING RE-CLASSIFICATION)

Hazards: Extra-dimensional Hazard, Extraterrestrial Hazard, Immeasurable Hazard, Info-Hazard, Ideological Hazard

Containment Protocols: Personnel are to not interact nor exchange any information with RPC-299, and must ensure to impede the Cult of L'iithra's activities. Subjects that had their eyes removed by RPC-299 are to be isolated within a special containment ward in Sector C of Site-015. Personnel are to not disclose any sensitive information in the presence of any subjects with eyes missing as a result of their exchange with RPC-299. Interactions with RPC-299 must be approved by a site director or higher and conducted through official Authority Occult Department channels.

Regarding incident-299-1, all personnel are to stand clear from interrogation room-4A. Report any fractalized areas that exceed beyond a 10 meter radius from the interrogation room. All personnel operating within the area of interrogation room-4A are to report to their supervisors if they experience acausality1 effects of any kind. This includes instances of paracausality2 or breaks in standard causality.

Description: RPC-299 is an extra-dimensional entity recognized as 'Uut'L'iithra', by a group of interest known as "Cult of L'iithra," that has been in operation in the early 1900s.3 RPC-299 has no discernible physical form and the only representation of its appearance is comprised of an immeasurable number of variable eyes, many of which are extraterrestrial in origin; however, it is likely that this is only an extension of its appearance. While the entity cannot exert direct physical contact within baseline reality, an exception is made when contacting the entity, or when the entity is operating within members of the cult. Other means of interaction are currently being investigated.

RPC-299 will exchange information with those who communicate with it. It will exchange information in return for either new information or the subject's eyes. RPC-299 will then impart the desired knowledge into the individual's memories via an anomalous, incomprehensible, and memetic language.

RPC-299 will attempt to structurally redefine fundamental concepts be it physical, or metaphysical in an affected region the entity has been summoned in. RPC-299 will break down and sort them into microscopic, or even sub-atomic particles in self-contained, localized spatial-tears made by RPC-299. Note that the entity will at times, recompile concepts and objects resulting in physics breaking causality effects. Video or auditory playback of affected individuals and anomalous speech patterns will produce pictographic imagery of various sources being one instance of this causality effect in motion.

It is unknown exactly where RPC-299 originated from, but a likely explanation is that the entity operates within a self-contained dimension existing within the baseline. Based upon the information procured from the cult, the dimension in which the entity inhabits is described as a library, with information constantly being updated, categorized, and translated into literary works in seemingly infinite aisles of bookshelves. According to the cult, it is possible for one to physically enter into the entity's dimension. Doing so however, will cause one to compulsively read every volume produced by RPC-299. They will ignore all their bodily needs until death. The cult described that if one were to die in RPC-299's dimension, their spirit will remain there.

Attempting to damage any of the contents within the library will cause the entity to become violent and absorb the individual. Members of the cult will take great care to ensure the contents of RPC-299's dimension are well protected. RPC-299 has been described as intelligent, wise and knowledgeable, and very protective of knowledge by the members of the cult. Judging by the formation of the cult and their connection to RPC-299, the entity's presence on Earth is fairly recent.

Addendum 299-01:
The Authority engaged with a cult cell operating within the Arizona region. MST Echo-21 ("Sleeping Sirens") traced the most recent reports of disappearances and homicide to a town called [REDACTED] Arizona, in which the cell compound was located. Echo-21 conducted a silent raid on the compound, capturing seven high priority targets and neutralizing the remaining members. Hostages found within the compound were recovered, questioned, given amnestics and returned home to their families.

All attempts to obtain information from the targets were unsuccessful. Four of the seven high priority targets all succumbed to overdose after the site was authorized to use specialized interrogation techniques. Psychology Department head Dr. Apth was tasked with interrogating the priests on account of his occult expertise.

The interrogation led to the discovery of RPC-299 and the process required for a ritual to communicate with it. The requirements for the ritual are as follows:

  • The diagram can be drawn using any method.
  • The diagram must pertain to the ocular system.
  • The diagram depicting intertwining appendages in the form of bookcases.
  • A pedestal or lectern must sit in the center of the diagram.
  • A book must be on the pedestal or lectern in order for the ritual to properly commence.
  • Ten runes that properly translate into RPC-299's name, structured in an infinity symbol.
  • The runes can be of any ink in the phrase proper, so long as they are legible.
  • This ritual must be performed in private.

Communication with RPC-299 will be possible as long as the criteria has been met. The book will transform and take shape into any form that RPC-299 will use to commune with the user.

Addendum 299-02:
The Cult of L'iithra is structured under a strict hierarchy. The main governing body is composed of the high priests who have direct communion with RPC-299 as a result of sacrificing their eyes. This is done in exchange for knowledge or a pact with the entity.

The cult's growth and power is the result of RPC-299 directly influencing the cult through the high priests. Similar runes were discovered prior to the cult's formation in 1915, when the first iteration of RPC-299's pawns discovered runes plastered in unsuspecting locations. This in turn gave them the ability to directly commune with the entity. In exchange for one eye, the anomaly divulged the necessary knowledge required. The other eye will be taken upon fulfilling the entity's desires. This sightlessness is considered to be a 'blessing' to the priests.

Addendum 299-03:

Test Log 299-01:
Subject: CSD-5081 with an audio recorder.
Procedure: CSD-5081 was instructed, after having to perform the ritual, to exchange information with RPC-299. The subject follows the procedures of the ritual. After the procedures were in place, and the subject began to inscribe into a blank page
Results: Several minutes later, the subject emerged from the containment chamber, his eyes missing. CSD-5081's vocal chords had been torn due to excessive screaming. CSD-5081 was unable to answer any questions and was immediately transferred to the medical-bay for proper medical treatment. Playback of the recording shows a one sided conversation between the subject and RPC-299. It is believed that the entity was communicating with him telepathically.

Note by Dr. Apth.

I do not understand what Uut'L'iithra's motives are, but after what happened in that room, this thing isn't doing this out of the kindness of its heart. Dr. ████████ is gone. So are the seven research personnel and CSD-5081. There's nothing left of them except particles.
I can't be sure what the cost was. And frankly speaking, we shouldn't deal with it, and you shouldn't too Isaac. That thing caused a lot of fucking damage. RPC-299 is not our information broker. Never-mind the potential security and information breach it can cause.
Oh, and you think he can't see through the sockets? Every time I pass by their cells, their heads always turn to follow. Why the fuck do you have this an orange level threat? I know gods like these Isaac. They don't think like we do. Their ethics and morals are alien to us as ours is to them. Just a whisper is all it takes for it to destroy a person.

It's watching us.
