Registered Phenomena Code: RPC-391

Containment Rating: Alpha

Lethality Rating: Yellow
h-transmutation.png Transmutation h-regenerative.png Regenerative

Containment Protocols: RPC-391 is to be kept indefinitely within an approved small container. Unauthorized handling and/or displacement of RPC-391 is prohibited. Current containment procedures and knowledge about RPC-391's properties have allowed the Authority to prevent RPC-391 from manifesting any anomalous behavior, and as such, no further testing has been deemed necessary.

RPC-391

Description: RPC-391 is a gold chain necklace with an oval cut rubine red1 ruby. The chain is measured at 50 centimeters in length, while the ruby measures at 26 x 18 millimeters. Materially, the object appears non-anomalous.

The effects of RPC-391 manifest themselves when worn around the neck of a living organism, where RPC-391 will proceed to completely tighten its chain in less than a second, decapitating the wearer in the process, while also destroying itself due to the speed at which the chain hits the pendant. RPC-391 will then recreate itself using new materials identical to its own, at the nearest location where these materials are present. When this procedure occurs, melting and movement of the matter needed to recreate RPC-391 will take place, followed by the material molding itself into RPC-391 over a period of 10 minutes.

To date, RPC-391's recreation reach has yet to be determined, with the current record set under Authority testing at 2.1 km. As a result of RPC-391 selecting locations containing jewelry to recreate itself, wealthy individuals are more likely to encounter RPC-391, these individuals are also more likely to wear RPC-391 due to it damaging surrounding jewelry during its reconstruction phase.

Following research on RPC-391, Authority researchers have concluded that RPC-391 has the capacity to identify its previous remains and will only use new materials when reconstructing itself. As-of-yet RPC-391's ability to differentiate between the two remains unknown. It should be noted that RPC-391's effects can also be triggered when damaging it or obstructing it during its reconstruction process. Thus far RPC-391's effects have been reactive, and if left untouched, will not display any abnormal properties.


Addendum-391-1: The following are excerpts from letters dating back to the French Revolution, before Louis XVI's2 trial. These letters are thought to be written by an anonymous member belonging to one of the factions within The Mountain3 political group and some of their content is suspected to reference RPC-391.

Letter, November 1792 (Translated)
In spite of claiming to want Louis executed, some of our colleagues seem to lack the will to act on these beliefs, and seem ready to go forwards with this charade of a trial. Despite knowing that this trial might end up in Louis favor. Arrangements have been made to acquire the necklace we've previously talked about. I'll inform you all, once I've obtained it.

Letter, December 1792 (Translated)
I've successfully acquired the necklace. But I realize this might be harder than we usually thought. This trial is drawing near, leaving us with little time to act. Unless someone finds a way to make Louis wear the necklace, I do not see a way to accomplish our goals.

Further information about RPC-391 during that time period could not be found, and since Louis XVI's trial took place as planned, and there's a lack of evidence that RPC-391 was ever in Louis XVI's possession, the Authority concluded that RPC-391 was never used due to the impending trial. Information about who gave RPC-391 to The Mountain members, and RPC-391's location after these events remains unknown to this day.

Addendum-391-2: After two centuries, RPC-391 resurfaced in France in 2014, after reports of multiple individuals and a family pet getting decapitated from a necklace surfaced in the Picardie region. Personnel were able to identify and find RPC-391 using visual descriptions of the necklace by witnesses and identifying patterns of behavior in the items anomalous effects.
