Registered Phenomena Code: 089

Object Class: Alpha-Orange

Hazard Types: Organic Hazard, Sentient Hazard

Containment Protocols: RPC-089 is to be contained in a 5m x 5m x 5m observational chamber at Research Site-024. The chamber is to be constructed of 50.8 mm thick tempered glass and reinforced with a secondary layer of bulletproof plastic film. A team of two armed guards is to be stationed within viewing distance of RPC-089 at all times. Following the events of test-089-4, all research and guard personnel assigned to RPC-089 must be vetted thoroughly to ensure they are devoid of musical talent and possess cursory knowledge of music as an art form.1

Description: RPC-089 is a pair of severed human hands formerly belonging to an individual known as ███ ████, now deceased. Each appendage is anatomically similar to the average Caucasian male hand, measuring approximately 188.9 mm from the tip of the middle finger to the wrist. Tissue samples have revealed that cells continue to function at an optimal level, with hair and nails perpetually growing even in its disembodied state. It should be noted that RPC-089 does not bleed nor display distress, despite being severed at the wrist.

RPC-089 is capable of autonomous motion2 and displays an elementary form of sentience. Despite its seemingly limited intellect, all attempts to communicate with RPC-089 thus far have proven to be unsuccessful. RPC-089 instead prefers to remain in a motionless state at all times, only becoming active when at least one of two conditions are met. These conditions are as follows:

  • When in the presence of any form of musical instrument, hereby designated RPC-089-A, RPC-089 will attempt to take hold of RPC-089-A. If a barrier is obstructing its path, RPC-089 will attempt to break through the barrier, persisting for a period of time before eventually returning to a dormant state. If RPC-089 is successful in obtaining the instrument, it will then play an arbitrary piece of music in an indefinite loop until the instrument is removed from its grasp. It should be noted that RPC-089 does display resistance when RPC-089-A is removed, provided that RPC-089 is allowed to play at least one full session.
  • When in the presence of an individual who possesses any form of musical skill, hereby designated RPC-089-B, RPC-089 will enter a state of uninhibited aggression, attempting to break out of its containment chamber with excessive force in order to reach RPC-089-B. Should RPC-089 succeed in reaching RPC-089-B, it will then attempt to ██████ RPC-089-B until the individual has expired. It is not yet known how RPC-089 is able to determine if an individual possesses musical talent. To date, RPC-089 has successfully breached containment ██ times when in the presence of RPC-089-B, resulting in the █ casualties.
