RPC-155-2 (See Addendum 155.01)


Registered Phenomena Code: 155

Object Class: Beta-Purple

Hazard Types: Aggression, Contact, Auditory, Emotional, Ideological, Info-Hazard, Memory Alteration, Mind-Control, Mind-Regression, Sensory, Visual

Containment Protocols: Due to concerns of accidental exposure leading to containment breaches, personnel employed by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization are not to be briefed on the nature of RPC-155. Authority Central Intelligence operatives are to be assigned to the North Atlantic Council and the Office of the Secretary-General to expunge any references alluding to "Article 0 of the North Atlantic Treaty" at the administrative level.

As directed by the Presidium, neutralization of any RPC-155-1 instances is not permitted. Expungement operations have been expanded to the United Nations Secretariat, following an increase of RPC-155 manifestation. Physical and digital copies of RPC-155 are to be destroyed with supervision. A copy, designated as RPC-155-2, has been kept for archival purposes and classified for eyes only at Level 4 Clearance.

In the event that RPC-155-1 instances unanimously invoke "Article 0", Site facilities within Western Command are to remain on high-alert and enter nuclear readiness. All nations considered NATO-aligned are to be treated as hostile.

Description: RPC-155 is a phenomenon that involves an unofficial treaty pertaining to a non-existent article of the North Atlantic Treaty. Purported to have been observed by Authority intelligence since the 1974 Brussels Summit, RPC-155, following a thorough search within the NATO Archives, does not appear to exist in any official documentation. It is, however, speculated that RPC-155 may have been the product of early propaganda and dissemination efforts by the Soviet Iron Initiative.

RPC-155 has been observed to affect those employed by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. RPC-155 has been observed to affect members of the North Atlantic Council. These subjects are known as RPC-155-1.

RPC-155-1 instances were observed extensively disseminating information regarding RPC-155 by an unofficial document labeled "Article 0 of the North Atlantic Treaty." RPC-155 duplicates, both physical and digital, have been reported to be anomalous.

When exposed to RPC-155, affected instances are determined to communicate their diplomatic counterparts of its existence through clandestine means in order to avoid detection by the Authority and respective agencies. RPC-155-1 instances appear to behave normally, though profuse sweating near the forehead is indicative of early-stage manifestation. Further manifestations develop when RPC-155-1 instances collectively employ their position, whether politically, diplomatically, or militarily, to raise tensions amongst NATO member states.

  • Extraordinary measures depending on their position generally differ between RPC-155-1 instances. These may include plans to broaden NATO military exercises in Europe, support for the mobilization of NATO Response Forces within its borders, and militarization of disputed territory.
  • The majority of RPC-155-1 instances' decisions vary between the reputation of both military and political power in their representing country. RPC-155-1 instances with reputable military and political structure have been primarily observed by Authority intelligence. However, due to the potential collaboration efforts from other RPC-155-1 instances, this was discontinued after [DATA EXPUNGED].

Consistent with earlier investigations, RPC-155-1 instances appear to behave in a hive-mind network. Much of the information about this "hive-mind" is pure conjecture, but studies of RPC-155-1 instances indicate that they share information about their organization's efforts to fulfill their goal.

Certain RPC-155-1 instances are every once in a while convinced that Europe and North America have been compromised by Russian spies, provoking them to intensify political measures across the organization.

Since 1974, only ██ RPC-155-1 instances have been neutralized.
