Item #: SCP-5087

Object Class: Keter

Laconic Containment Procedures: Keep it contained where it was discovered. A Temporal Sink is to remain active in this chamber. SCP-5087-1 instances are to be captured, interrogated, and killed no more than 354 days later.

Personnel are allowed to explore SCP-5087-2 if they have enough experience.

Keep old versions of SCP-5087's file in time-altering-proof storage.

Laconic Description: SCP-5087 are fragments of a broken Rome-era artistic relief that has a bubble of stopped time around its center of mass. When fully assembled, it is referred to as SCP-5087-G.

SCP-5087-1 are Foundation personnel from different different timelines that emerge from the bubble. The same three appear annually, with one female and two males, though are usually a little different in appearance every time.

SCP-5087-2 is an ancient Roman city where time does not flow. It is accessed via SCP-5087-G. The city is suspended in the celebration of Saturnalia, a festival of the god Saturn. Oddly, all depictions of him are missing from the city.

Additional Context: As built up throughout the article, it is implied that SCP-5087 is actually the shattered prison of an unnamed "Code Black Keter" that is implied to be manipulating time. The three -1 instances are attempting to repair the timelines and contain the entity, but O5-12 is intentionally interfering for some reason.

The entity could be the Roman god Saturn, who is a god of time.

SCP-5087 was an entry in the SCP-5000 Contest, where it won 18th place.
