omega-purple.png

Registered Phenomena Code: 316

Object Class: OMEGA-PURPLE

Hazard Types: Aggression, Auditory, Emotional, Ideological, Info-Hazard, Memory Alteration, Mind-Control, Ontological, Sapient, Visual

Containment Protocol: Access or knowledge of this Omega-Purple revision of RPC-316 is closed off to all Japan-based personnel. All personnel in Japan are to be left alone to resume their daily routines to the best of their abilities and must not be alerted, challenged over any discrepancies, or receive conflicting viewpoints highlighting any potential threats presented by RPC-316.

Only a classified selection of personnel in Japan are cleared to access this revision of RPC-316. Other Japan-stationed personnel displaying any resistance to RPC-316's effects are advised to act along and must not behave in any manner that may aggravate RPC-316-1s into interpreting threats or insubordination towards RPC-316.

Description: RPC-316 is a humanoid entity bearing vaguely simian morphological proportions. RPC-316 possesses dwarfism with a height of 0.8m, disproportionately long arms measuring 0.6m in length, and an extended cranium that protrudes behind it for approximately 30cm. RPC-316 also shows signs of advanced aging: extensive wrinkling, a slight hunch and mild mobility issues alleviated with the use of a walking stick 0.5m in length.

RPC-316's primary anomalous trait causes all humans who perceive it to become memetically compelled to recognize it as their superior, hereby termed RPC-316-1. RPC-316’s secondary anomalous trait allows it to travel undetected and unperceived by human senses. These two traits combined grant it unparalleled infiltration capabilities into any human settlement, building, site or facility, as all staff and personnel either immediately perceive it to be a VIP of critical importance to their respective organizations or communities, or simply not notice it at all.

In addition, recently affected personnel who read any documentation pertaining to RPC-316 will lapse back into an RPC-316-1 state in spite of RPC-316's absence. RPC-316-1s will then perceive such documentation to either be written in the highest form of praise towards RPC-316 and approve of it, or will attempt to make changes to the document to match their misguided perception of RPC-3161.

Much to the RPC Authority's detriment, RPC-316 has taken a fondness for visiting facilities across Japan where personnel are converted into RPC-316-1s and perceive it as an ultimate figurehead of the Authority. All titles that RPC-316-1s have invented for it are universally outlandish, nonsensical and untrue. It must be stressed that there has never been any “Sole True Founder” of the RPC Authority, let alone a supposed position ranking higher than that of the Global Directorate.

RPC-316's routine visit to an RPC facility starts with converting personnel into RPC-316-1s of varying levels of servile and unprofessional conduct. It visits the VIP lounge and consumes its weight in alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, luxury foods and snacks/condiments. While feasting RPC-316 regularly discusses plans to visit overseas Authority facilities in order to extend its influence, as well as placing orders for cost-prohibitive gifts to itself. RPC-316-1s working in Site Administration are anomalously compelled to order and purchase such extravagant items, either via site funding, or by passing a requisition form to higher administration for clearance.2

Once it has eaten its fill RPC-316 will wander the site and access restricted areas, treating the facility, its personnel and contained RPCs as a mixture of zoo and curiosity exhibit. It travels in a random manner and may either be attended to by RPC-316-1s or break off to wander on its own. It may also enter the site’s archives and proceed to access and read highly classified documentation (with the clearance of RPC-316-1s from administration), acquiring further knowledge of the RPC Authority's workings, finances, personnel dossiers and additional highly classified data. As of this article's writing, RPC-316 has learned of numerous level 4 and level 5 classified information. This is a massive security vulnerability as RPC-316 has a tendency to produce jokes that involve openly revealing the contents of these classified documents towards personnel who lack clearances.

Once it finally leaves the site, a secondary effect comes over all RPC-316-1s who interacted with it; either forgetting of its existence and display confusion at the results of its actions (such as a litter-strewn VIP lounge emptied of food), or remember its visit with fondness and make excuses and justifications to themselves to downplay its absurd requests, while nevertheless attempting to fulfill them to the best of their ability.

RPC-316's power is near-absolute; it is capable of ordering RPC-316-1s to obey its orders and prioritize its desires above all else. RPC-316-1s are dedicated to its safety and wellbeing, and are willing to make compromises they normally would not make in a conventional scenario. Dependent on their base personality, controlled personnel may become agitated and combative if the "authority" of RPC-316 becomes challenged or questioned by fellow personnel who are not as extensively affected. RPC-316-1s who spend an extended amount of time with RPC-316 begin adopting a more archaic manner of speaking and personality, addressing RPC-316 in a more feudalistic manner along with matching honorifics(i.e. Milord).

Despite this, its powers do have limitations: RPC-316-1s who are well-versed in the bureaucratic process of the RPC Authority's inner workings are capable of subconsciously resisting its commands out of confusion, or by citing/remembering the disciplinary need to adhere to protocol. Also, the more drastic the command (i.e. being ordered to shoot fellow personnel without prior justification) the more it induces cognitive dissonance and possibly subconscious attempts to resist its control. RPC-316 appears to be aware of this, subtly wording its commands and requests in a non-contrary manner so as to minimize cognitive dissonance, although it may break character if it feels that it is not getting its way. Finally, a few personnel are innately resistant towards RPC-316's compulsion for reasons unknown. Ethnicity may play a factor into this, as non-Asian personnel appear slower to comply and are more likely to question RPC-316's orders.

Finally, RPC-316 possesses a personality that can be best described as highly immature, easily bores, and jovially hubristic. It has a propensity to furnish grandiose claims, a blatantly false past background that includes the paradoxical creation of several existing GoIs bearing conflicting goals, and cares little more than to seek entertainment at the expense of site finances, personnel wellbeing, operational ability or structural integrity3.

Discovery Log: RPC-316 initially appeared at Site-███ during ██/██/2019, converting the vast majority of site personnel into RPC-316-1s upon visual contact. RPC-316 has since journeyed across Japan on its own, visiting Authority sites and outposts and turning an estimated 92.4% of Japanese Authority personnel into RPC-316-1s.

RPC-316 is believed to have been one of the numerous entities trapped within RPC-257 for several centuries. This was until the damage inflicted upon RPC-257-1 by a semi-related anomalous entity temporarily weakened the stasis-like effect within RPC-257-2. This most likely allowed RPC-316 to awaken within its chamber and successfully escape RPC-257-2 before the effect reasserted itself. This is further corroborated by an expedition in RPC-257-2 that revealed an empty chamber housing a wooden throne tailored to RPC-316's physical proportions, also featuring engravings that detail titles and descriptions related to RPC-316.

« WARNING »

THE FOLLOWING FILES ARE LEVEL 4 CLASSIFIED.


UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS IS FORBIDDEN. VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED.


THE INFLUENCE OF VIDERICS IS REQURED TO READ THE FOLLOWING LOGS.


YOU ARE NOW ACCESSING A COGNITOSHROUDED SECTION.


RESTRICTED FILES, SECTION 1: RPC-316

The purple logs are a collection of dialogue recorded without the awareness of RPC-316 or RPC-316-1s, demonstrating RPC-316's experimental querying of the Authority's contingency protocols and scope of power, exploring what it is fully capable of achieving with its anomalous influence over RPC personnel.

Personnel identities have been classified on a Level 5 basis.







While not actively hostile against the RPC Authority, the fact remains that RPC-316 has begun exploring dangerous ways of exercising its anomalous traits to find out the true extent of its power. The possibility of causing massive devastation, manipulating strife amongst personnel, stealing RPCs for personal use or fully exploiting the Authority purely for its own selfish ends has now reached an unacceptable point, warranting an aggression hazard and a high-priority neutralization warrant.


RESTRICTED FILES, SECTION 2: OPERATION WEEDPLUCK

Operation goal: The immediate neutralization of RPC-316 while minimizing potential risks of inciting rebellion among affected RPC personnel.

RPC-316's location must be discerned as quickly as possible with no expense spared. RPC-316 is to be engaged by Classified MST Kill-teams under the effect of administered Viderics, and is to be terminated as swiftly as possible. Should RPC-316 be within close vicinity of an Authority Facility, Kill-teams are to pull back and not attract attention.

Viderics-administered assassins embedded within Japanese facilities under false positions are to monitor for RPC-316's approach and/or presence. If spotted, assassins are to isolate then swiftly neutralize it without drawing the attention of facility personnel, disposing of its body as fast as possible so that its disappearance may be dismissed as one of its antics. Failing that, the assassin is authorized to cause a chain of events to make it appear that RPC-316 was terminated by accident. To this extent, assassins are hereby authorized and supplied with override codes to deliberately cause containment breaches as long as it ends in RPC-316's termination.

Current status: Ongoing failure. RPC-316 has displayed a preternatural ability to avoid danger, passively evading kill-teams by spontaneously changing its plans or travel directions. RPC-316's ability to not draw notice appears stronger than its ability to influence observers' perceptions, and extracted footage displays it even walking out of staged ambush zones without assassins noticing its passage.

Alterations of Videric dosages and stronger forms are being proposed, on top of AI-automated assassination droids being deployed beyond detection ranges of Authority facilities.
