SCP-164 | Squid Tumors (SCP Orientation)
SCP Orientation is an archive of files of the SCP Foundation.
Today we will be studying item number SCP-164: Squid Tumors, Object class: Euclid.
SCP-164 is a strain of cancerous cells that causes sarcoma-like tumors in host bodies. While cell DNA appears to be primarily derived from human DNA, the cells now effectively exist as unicellular, asexually-reproducing parasites. Tumors produced by SCP-164 that grow larger than a certain size will, in 75% of cases, follow normal behavior for cancerous sarcomas. However, in 25% of cases, host bodily materials will be utilized for the creation of a new, separate organism inside the tumor.
Mature organisms identify as being completely unrelated to the original tumors, corresponding with a previously unknown species of squid. Removal of organisms shows they are entirely viable in marine conditions, however, said organisms will also remain entirely viable in the original tumor, rarely moving or shifting position, continuing to grow at a regular rate until the host is killed.
