Item #: SCP-4999

Object Class: Keter

Laconic Containment Procedures: Since it only appears to people that are about to die, just keep an eye out for and confiscate any footage of it.

Laconic Description: SCP-4999 is a man in a dark suit that appears beside people that are about to die alone, where it will keep them company until they pass away. It doesn't say anything, but may offer the dying person a cigarette. Upon the death of the visited individual, SCP-4999 will demanifest.

SCP-4999 is more likely to appear to someone if they are a relative "nobody" with no relationships, accomplishments, etc. The Foundation puzzlingly finds ancient depictions of SCP-4999 which shouldn't be possible since recording equipment is required to even know it exists.

Additional Context: SCP-4999 was an entry in the SCP-4000 Contest, where it won 3rd place.
