Footage of RPC-135 during its active state

Registered Phenomena Code: 135

Object Class: Beta-Orange

Hazard Types: Mechanical Hazard, Extra-Dimensional Hazard, Visual Hazard, Emotional-Hazard

Containment Protocols: RPC-135 is contained within a standard containment chamber in Site-015, with a magnetically sealed double-airlock door. Two ASF personnel are required to stand within range outside of RPC-135's containment chamber after testing. This is to ensure RPC-135 will not re-materialize outside of the testing chamber if there are no human presence within its vicinity. Any test subjects exposed to RPC-135 are to be removed from the containment chamber before performing additional testing. Psychological evaluations and mandatory psychiatric treatments are required for any test subjects who have worked with RPC-135. If the subject's psychological condition does not improve within the next three to five days, amnestics will be administered into the test subject.

Should RPC-135 breach containment, ensure civilian and research personnel are escorted into the nearest emergency shelter. If there are no immediate shelters in place, designate them to the nearest unoccupied room. Security personnel are to utilize the site's surveillance equipment to track RPC-135. One CSD personnel will be used as bait to keep the entity in place for ASF to move in, and secure the entity in a mobile containment transfer unit. It is imperative for ASF to avoid making direct eye contact with the screen during recovery operations.

Description: RPC-135 is a clothed iron statue. The object is approximately 1.8 meters tall, weighing 227 Kilograms and bearing a CRT TV in place of its head. The anomaly constantly broadcasts a rapid sequence of random cosmological imagery representing a signal pattern. This pattern is a method for RPC-135 influence its victims and communicate with them. This signal pattern will trigger an emotional response to anyone who remains in direct visual contact of the entity for an extended period of time. The source of the broadcast cannot be traced.

RPC-135 will always remain motionless even upon activation when in the presence of humans. If there is no indication of a human presence in visual range, RPC-135 will instantaneously re-materialize near any living human within a ten meter radius. For RPC-135 to re-materialize, there must be obstructions between the entity and its target. How this is possible is unclear and research is ongoing.

Upon making visual contact with the anomaly, test subjects will become entranced and stare into the anomaly's CRT screen. In most cases, the subject will approach RPC-135 and attempt to make physical contact. RPC-135's screen will then turn to static as the test subject climbs into the screen and vanish. How this occurs (as the screen is too small for an adult human to fit through the aperture) is unknown. Indirect observation of RPC-135 does not trigger its anomalous effects, even in its active state.

Recent tests required the subjects to be equipped with retrieval harnesses and shoulder-mounted cameras to retrieve the CSDs and any visual recordings. However, upon passing through the aperture, the tethers attached to the test subjects' retrieval harnesses were severed. Any visual records of the tests were lost.

Discovery Log 135-01:
After matching several missing persons reports filed around Detroit, [REDACTED], the Authority was able to trace the entity's pattern to an abandoned apartment complex, where they encountered RPC-135, locked in one of the collapsed basements.

Addendum 135-1:
Several tests were conducted to determine the extent of RPC-135's anomalous effects.

Test Log-135-1:

Subject: CSD-1335, paralyzed from the waist down.

Procedure: This test is to determine RPC-135's anomalous effects when interacting with handicapped individuals.

Result: CSD-1335 observed RPC-135 for a total of thirty minutes before pushing himself off of the wheelchair. The subject then crawled towards RPC-135 where he then attempted to pull himself up and into RPC-135's screen. ASF personnel were ordered to enter the room and recover the CSD.

Test Log-135-2:

Subject: CSD-3315, restrained to a chair.

Procedure: This test is to determine how long RPC-135's anomalous effects take place.

Result: CSD-3315 remained restrained in the seat after about six hours of exposure. No other changes have been observed in RPC-135's behavior. CSD-3315 however, became agitated after consistent exposure to RPC-135. Subject had to be retrieved and sedated following his breakdown.

Test Log-135-3:

Subject: CSD-0105.

Procedure: This test is to determine RPC-135's effects in a dark environment.

Result: CSD-0105 enters the dark containment chamber. The room is illuminated upon RPC-135's activation. Subject proceeds to observe RPC-135 for several minutes before attempting to make physical contact. CSD-0105 was retrieved without incident.

Test Log-135-4:

Subject: CSD-6184

Procedure: This procedure is to determine if and where RPC-135 leads its victims to. CSD-6184 is outfitted with a retrieval harness with a shoulder mounted camera.

Results: Subject enters the chamber. Observes RPC-135. After making physical contact, the subject begins to climb into RPC-135's screen. All visual feed was lost upon and the cord connected to the retrieval harness is disconnected. There is a clear indication that it was cut with precision.

Test Log-135-5:

Subject: CSD-3124

Procedure: In this procedure, a tether hooked to a pulley system is attached to CSD-3124's ankles with the intent of reeling in CSD-3124 upon partially entering RPC-135's screen.

Results: Subject observes RPC-135 for several minutes before making physical contact. CSD-3124 then proceeds to climb into RPC-135's screen. Immediately after, the pulley system was activated to reel CSD-3124 in. However, there was some resistance preventing the recovery of the CSD personnel. Subject exhibited signs of distress, shaking violently and kicking back. Pull strength was increased, and two ASF personnel were assigned to assist in extraction with minimum results. CSD-3124 was violently torn apart from the waist up, with his upper body disappearing into the screen. The remains left showed signs of precision cutting before CSD-3124 was torn.

Test Log-135-6:

Subject: One lab rat.

Procedure: To minimize loss of CSD personnel, this procedure is to test whether or not RPC-135's anomalous properties can affect animals.

Results: No results. It appears that RPC-135's properties do not have any visible effect on animals.
