Registered Phenomena Code: 636

Object Class: Beta-Orange

Hazard Types: Animated, Regenerative, Sapient, Transmutation

Containment Protocols: The area in which RPC-636 is known to manifest should be monitored by plainclothes Authority agents under the cover story of being building inspectors. Structures affected by RPC-636 are to be evacuated upon detection then demolished. Any specimens or artifacts recovered for research are suspended in blocks of ice which encompasses their mass. This has been shown to deter the RPC-636’s effect on surrounding masonry.

Description: RPC-636 is an anomalous phenomenon found primarily within the city of London. Structures affected by RPC-636 must be inhabited by subjects in a state of poverty before any anomalous effect will initiate. More desperate living conditions will cause a more intense effect to manifest. In the affected regions, subjects have been known to live with multiple families in a small bedroom, and with extremely primitive to nonexistent sanitation and ventilation. Rodent and insect infestations, along with unsanitary conditions, high infant mortality, propensity for alcoholism, prostitution, and social unrest are ubiquitous to areas affected by RPC-636.

Once affliction by RPC-636 has fully set in, the interior spaces will no longer have dimensions consistent with their exterior. Windows and ventilation shafts visible from the outside will grow in endless fractal spiderweb patterns on the inside to accommodate this growth. The internal plumbing will cease pumping water and instead bring in contaminated construction chemicals.

Following the RPC-636 effect manifesting, rubble and debris will animate in basic humanoid forms. These entities are classified as instances of RPC-636-1, which will slowly fill whatever space within the RPC-636 spaces that has collapsed or crumbled. Once finding a hole, RPC-636-1 will break down again to take the form of the human development cycle, initially re-appearing as an infant before growing into an adult humanoid body.

When fully grown, instances of RPC-636-1 will seek out the nearest damaged artificial structure. Once they do so, they will perform various rituals on or around the damaged structure. Examples of these rituals include:

  • Attempting to gently rub mortar or other sealants into cracks or small damaged portions of the structure
  • Laying new bricks if the structure is composed as such
  • Spending significant amounts of time lying motionlessly nearby the structure, or within if the damage is prominent
  • Stomping around the structure while scraping at various portions of its body, in a rhythmic manner
  • Scratching various messages into the undamaged portions of the structure (See attached documentation.)
  • Pounding on the walls.
  • Breaking windows, doorframes, and other fragile structures.
  • Scraping against the walls, ceilings and floors, in a manner reminiscent of rodents or insects.
  • Dirtying clothing and objects by rapidly shedding flakes of paint, dirt and dust onto them.
  • Manifesting mouths under the floors, which will moan softly. Voice has been described as "rough" and has a high-pitched inflection.

Discovery: RPC-636 was initially noted in 1968, after the local police force in London documented the spatial anomalies in their case files. An RPC-636-1 was found carving a message in mortar outside a coffee shop, which was the initial recovery location. Researcher Hornqvist supervised the situation while local agents observed the perimeter while allowing RPC-636-1 proceed over a period of four(4) hours, after which agents moved in to contain it.

Were we built for regret

or

Bricked over each other

Despite concrete on mortar grinding together

Shoving me in your cubby a dream for tomorrow

Melding together?

I

Am

Born to you as new

our suns welded by hot iron

Fill in the cracks

Be whole with me

broken and backwards

No more
