Item #: SCP-374

Object Class: Safe

Laconic Containment Procedures: SCP-374 must be stored in a disassembled state. The blade must be separated from the rest of the device and cleaned after each use. The frame and blade must always stay connected; every other part can be replaced. Every expired instance of SCP-374-1 must be preserved in formaldehyde, then incinerated after one year. Every SCP-374-1 should ideally be D-class personnel, except in emergencies. Every interview must be recorded, transcribed, and archived.

Laconic Description: SCP-374 is a French Revolution-era guillotine that produces an instance of SCP-374-1 every time it decapitates a human being. Every human head (SCP-374-1) is inhabited by the personality of French Revolutionary Jean Philippe-Horace-Donatien (rest of name redacted). For 35 minutes, the instance provides the answer to any question asked. However, SCP-374-1 believes the Foundation to be evil, diminishing its usefulness.
