Registered Phenomena Code: 102

Object Class: Alpha-Orange

Hazard Type: Sapient Hazard, Organic Hazard, Aggression Hazard

Containment Protocols: At the moment, twelve instances of RPC-102 remain and have been contained in Site-015. All instances of RPC-102 are to be contained within a specialized, 190cm diameter by 200cm height containment storage compartment for living entities. All research and materials regarding the concept and creation of RPC-102 instances are to be confiscated and secured in a standard level 3 storage compartment.

Description: RPC-102 is a series of artificially created humanoids. While their genetic makeup is similar to humans, the entities suffer from severe physical deformities. These deformities vary, though the most common characteristics detail morbidly obese bodily proportions, large feet, claw-like hands, serrated teeth, elongated jaws and are humpback. Every instance of RPC-102 average around 60.20 cm standing upright and weight about 33 kg.

The anatomical structure of the specimens are similar to that of the human body. Based on the bone and muscle structures however, some of the necessary organs are missing. Liver, kidneys, and both small and large bowels. To compensate for this, the stomach reprocesses ingested food into elements necessary for developing body mass and a larger figure. Toxins or waste exhibit minimal noxious effect, with specimens developing progressively higher levels of tolerance and resistance with repeated exposure.

Instances of RPC-102 exhibit limited sapience. Despite indicating limited intelligence, the specimens exhibit unusual behavioral and psychological patterns. Said patterns indicate an abnormal sexual drive,1 sadism, cannibalism, and lack of empathy. Often, they will appear non-threatening or even friendly towards other specimens or even test subjects. These specimens will kill and consume other living or deceased specimens for sustenance. This behavior; however, is rarely expressed toward related specimens of their social group. Remains of their victims are often used for decorative purposes, additional sustenance, or for sexual relief.

Male instances of RPC-102 have shown to be more sexually active and violent than females. They will actively seek out females to copulate, and will often harm members of their own social community during their mating phases. Female instances will often reject their advances, and every encounter will result in the males forcing themselves upon them or the female killing their aggressors. Even after sexual copulation, the process ends in the male being devoured.

After impregnation, female instances will undergo a period of gestation lasting for a month before developing various juvenile instances of RPC-102. Further supported by cannibalizing the father during or after copulation. Following birth, juvenile instances of RPC-102 will proceed to devour their mother. Juvenile instances that are considered inferior to their siblings will additionally be consumed.

This indicates an unusually high rate of metabolism within instances of RPC-102, most prominently within female instances. While these specimens are capable of surviving without nutritional sustenance for weeks at a time, they will begin to exhibit bowel pains and physical weakness. RPC-102's diet is strictly carnivorous, as they have previously indicated a lack of ability or willingness to consume non-meat-based produce.2

Discovery Log 102-01:
RPC-102 are based on the alchemical research of the Swiss physician and alchemist Paracelsus in the late 1400s. Paracelsus' research and production of RPC-102 were in relation to his research of sperm cells. Though Paracelsus was only ever succeeded in producing three specimens of these, the method of which he done so is unclear as the alchemist terminated his creations and destroyed nearly all his findings. The only exceptions being work that he published prior to his final research drafts and contemporary notes on those texts. These articles and notes are outdated however, when compared to his later findings. The content within the texts did not provide enough information to replicate his procedures. Utilizing these works, the Authority was able to connect him to the current instances of RPC-102.

Notes found within the apprentice's research indicates that these instances Paracelsus' work were a result of human error and carelessness in his experiments.3

Acquisition of RPC-102 instances began on [REDACTED] of 2017, where eviscerated remains of a man were found in an apartment complex in Tuscan, Italy. The body was found by the landlord who also reported 'little people' taking residence. The call to police was intercepted and Authority agents went in to investigate. They discovered Twelve instances of RPC-102 feeding off of the remains.

Along with the acquisition of the specimens, the Authority confiscated documents and lab equipment that were found on the victim's desk. The documents that were recovered contained information that closely resembles Paracelsus' and his apprentices' works. However, some of the papers contained recent information built upon the previous works, penned by an unidentified author of recent times. An investigation has been put in place to trace the source of these copies to the author.

Observational Report 102-01:
Three instances of RPC-102, Dubbed Group A, were introduced into a community of seven other instances, Dubbed Group B. The two group instances observed each other for three minutes before the entities of Group B assaulted. The next three hours detail Group B rendering, torturing and cannibalizing the members of Group A. The members of Group B then proceeded to [DATA EXPUNGED].

Observational Report 102-02:
Group B temporarily escaped containment after makeshift tools were used from the fiber, sinew and muscle from Group A. CSD-01812, who was introduced to interact with the entities, found the storage box was empty when entering the testing chamber. The instances revealed themselves and began attacking CSD-01812, striking at his legs to fell him. They then proceeded to assault CSD-01812 from every direction before killing two instances. CSD-01812 was escorted out by security and the RPCs detained. The remnants of Group B devoured the remains of their peers.

Observational Report 102-03:
Group B started to play with the remains of their recently deceased members. They were observed using remains of their skin to tie and knot together in order to build a small hut. Though despite their efforts, the results were incompatible. However, this indicates that the entities have a basic form of complex thinking and understanding to build shelter.

Observational Report 102-04:
Materials were introduced into the experiment. Splinters of wood varying 50-320cm in length and 50 in width were scattered around the compartment, a twine, scraps of cloth and rock rubble. Results show the entities were more successful in their endeavors. Remaining resources were used to shape Group A's remains for decorative purposes.
