Item #: SCP-073

Laconic Containment Procedures: SCP-073 has his own cell with amenities and may freely wander the facility, but may not leave it or touch the ground. Violence is also not to be used against SCP-073.

Laconic Description: SCP-073 is an average Middle Eastern looking man. His extremities and spine have been replaced with artificial prosthetic's, but he is only aware of it if it's pointed out. He has a mark on his forehead in an ancient language. He identifies as "Cain" and is generally polite and helpful, although somewhat cold. He has detailed knowledge of historical events and is proficient in many languages, including extinct ones. He also has photographic memory and perfect recall, being able to memorize huge amounts of information extremely quickly. SCP-073 makes any soil he touches infertile, and any plants and plant-derived products to die or rot away. Any harm or damage that comes to SCP-073 is instead rendered to whoever is doing it, whether direct or indirect. Despite this, he still feels pain.

Additional Context: This SCP is a reference to the biblical story of the brothers Cain and Abel, the sons of Adam and Eve. Cain committed the first murder out of jealousy for his brother and was forever cursed by God for it, who placed the mark of Cain on him. He was exiled, the mark made him impossible to kill, and his curse made it impossible for him to grow food from the soil.
