Description: SCP-119 appears to be a handmade child's blanket three by three meters in dimensions, woven from cotton fibers. It bears numerous, brightly-colored, cartoon characters popular in 1980 American culture. The bottom left corner of SCP-119 has been torn.
SCP-119 was acquired in early 199█, by a former Class-D employee. Mr. ███████ had managed to retain the object through his time in the ███████████ County jail, even up until his acceptance into our facilities. From various unrecorded and unofficial conversations with Mr. ███████, it was determined that he had acquired it in 19██, from his grandmother. Background information on Mr. ███████'s grandmother were unsuccessful; apparently, the woman in question had died twenty years before his birth.
The object was first brought to our attention as a special interest after Mr. ███████ survived an encounter with SCP-234, using SCP-119. Shortly after the discovery, Mr. ███████ was terminated for refusal to relinquish 119. Researchers immediately began experimenting with the object, and discovered some of its various properties. These are listed as such:
- Protection from any known external harm: When completely covered by SCP-119, the object seems to be entirely impervious to any known form of harm. Subjects under the protection of 119 were exposed to high levels of gamma radiation, hydrochloric acid, burning napalm, 50 caliber magnum rounds, SCP-517, SCP-682, SCP-616, SCP-689, and SCP-058. All subjects survived unharmed.
- Increased levels of endorphins: All subjects touching SCP-119 experienced a great deal of happiness and good will. However, when two or more subjects were in contact with it, they began to fight over ownership.
- Increased mental stability: Subjects who previously suffered from depression, psychosis, and other mental afflictions were temporarily free of all symptoms. Subjects with no mental diseases reported a greater self confidence, and a feeling of total content. These effects faded after twenty four hours without contact with the object.
- Obsession: All subjects who came in contact with SCP-119 for extended periods of time became completely obsessed with owning the object, and often showed minor aggressive signs when procedures were finished. One subject, who was in contact with SCP-119 for over twenty-four hours was terminated after he attempted to strangle an agent with the object. This case was isolated, and the subject had a previous record of heavy violence. Many other subjects frequently questioned to the whereabouts and status of 119 after the tests for nearly a month afterward.
