SCP-096, or "The Shy Guy," is a hostile humanoid SCP encountered in SCP - Containment Breach.
Description[edit | edit source]
SCP-096 is a humanoid creature measuring approximately 2.38 meters in height. It shows very little muscle mass, with preliminary analysis of body mass suggesting mild malnutrition. Arms are grossly out of proportion with the rest of its body, with an approximate length of 1.5 meters each. Skin is mostly devoid of pigmentation, with no sign of any body hair.
SCP-096 is normally extremely docile. However, when someone views SCP-096's face, whether it be directly, via video recording, or even a photograph, it will enter a stage of considerable emotional distress. SCP-096 will cover its face with its hands and begin screaming, crying, and babbling incoherently. Approximately 1 to 2 minutes after the first viewing, SCP-096 will begin running to the person who viewed its face.
Upon arriving at the person's location, SCP-096 will proceed to kill them, leaving nothing but a splatter of blood. SCP-096 will then sit down for several minutes before regaining its composure and becoming docile once again.
In-game[edit | edit source]
When docile, SCP-096 will passively approach and follow the player. Should the player ever view SCP-096's face, it will enter an agitated state and will begin to cover its face and panic, continuing for several seconds. Shortly after, it will start chasing the player down to kill them.
SCP-096 is extremely fast and cannot be deterred by doors or elevators, regardless as to whether or not they are locked, as it will rip them open to catch up to the player. Once it catches the player, it'll tear apart their limbs and devour them. Tesla gates prove unsuccessful in stopping SCP-096. At this point, it's impossible to finish the game. Even if you managed to reach the Gate A/B's elevator, it will show up in front of elevator door and kill the player.
When not triggered, SCP-096 will randomly wander around various rooms in the Heavy Containment Zone. Specifically, it can spawn in the following rooms:
- All metal corridor variations with the exception of the corner variant.
- Grated Hallway
- Gas Catwalk
- Three-Way Gas Catwalk
SCP-096 also appears in the small server room where it brutally kills a guard that accidentally viewed its face. The player has to reset the power so they may escape from the room, due to the doors becoming locked after entering the control room. SCP-096 itself will wander around the room, making it difficult to avoid looking at its face.
SCP-096 can also spawn in a lockroom, where it will be sitting down in the center of the room around several blood splatters. It is easy to avoid SCP-096 in this room since the player can just walk around its back to reach the next room.
