RPC-204 in containment.

Registered Phenomena Code: 204

Object Class: Gamma-Purple

Hazard Types: Sapient Hazard, Organic Hazard, Ideological Hazard, Sensory Hazard

Containment Protocols: RPC-204 is to be contained in a 4 meter by 4 meter standard humanoid containment chamber 20 kilometers northwest of Site-002 at all times. This containment chamber is to be labeled as "Site-002 Fallout Shelter". As of 27/1/1998, RPC-204 is to be contained in the abandoned town of [REDACTED], Slovakia. RPC-204 must be fitted with a modified tracking device on its being at all times, capable of delivering a disabling electrical charge to RPC-204 should it attempt to breach containment. At least 100 CSD personnel must occupy the town at all times to prevent RPC-204 from breaching containment. All instances of RPC-204-1 which have been confirmed to have manifested in nearby villages are to be reported immediately, followed by the administration of amnestics to all inhabitants of the affected village. If an RPC-204-2 event occurs in a surrounding village, ASF Rapid Response Team, "Men In Black", are to contain all inhabitants and designate them as CSD personnel. If a test involving RPC-204 is scheduled, RPC-204 must be transported to the scheduled test area via air transportation. Currently, RPC-204 has not physically attacked any personnel, and thus, it is to be considered docile. RPC-204 has not attempted to breach containment since 27/1/1998.

Description: RPC-204 is a humanoid entity standing at approximately 180 cm in height and weighing approximately 73 kg. RPC-204 wears a CBRN suit roughly equivalent to a Czech military model from 1993, though inconsistencies have been sighted with the suit itself. RPC-204 has been confirmed to be biologically identical to a human male from the age range of 30-34, with the exception of greenish-grey skin. RPC-204 requires no external sustenance, suggesting the ability of self-regeneration. RPC-204 appears to be immune to all forms of damage that would be fatal to an average human, however, injuries sustained by RPC-204 from testing show that it is not totally impervious to harm. RPC-204 appears to only have a basic concept of socialization and language, as when it is approached, RPC-204 will vocalize survival information for nuclear blasts in the Czech language. Despite wearing an M10-M gas mask at most times, RPC-204's vocalizations sound as if they are unobstructed. As of 9/5/1999, It has been discovered that RPC-204 cannot make these vocalizations without its gas mask.


Manifestation of RPC-204-2.

RPC-204's anomalous properties manifest when RPC-204 enters a populated area of any population size over 250 individuals. Upon entrance, multiple instances of RPC-204-1 will manifest, followed by the manifestation of an RPC-204-2 event approximately 15 minutes later. During this period, all residents will enter a state of panic, frantically searching for "Fallout Shelters."1 After an RPC-204-2 event, all humans within the affected area will begin to hallucinate a post-apocalyptic scenario, with subjects reacting differently to their situation according to their mental state prior to the RPC-204-2 event. RPC-204 will only leave the area when approximately 75% of the population of the area dies when either approximately 75% of the area's population dies, or if violence within the area affected by RPC-204-2 ceases. Upon RPC-204 leaving an area, the remaining population will no longer hallucinate, retaining memories from the hallucinations. This often leads to suicide in most individuals. Those who do not commit suicide upon the conclusion of an RPC-204-2 event will express a strong desire to neutralize RPC-204.

RPC-204-1 are a series of anomalous emergency broadcasts that begin transmitting when RPC-204 enters into a populated area. RPC-204-1 instances have shown to be identical to the alert system present in the country they manifest inside of. If a country does not a have a dedicated emergency alert system, RPC-204-1 manifestations will appear to be identical to those of Australia's Standard Emergency Warning Signal, although translated to the language of the country it is broadcasted in. RPC-204-1 broadcasts will repeat until an RPC-204-2 event, although subsequent broadcasts are spoken in Czech. If an area's emergency alert system broadcasts in two languages, Czech will always replace the latter language. It is to be noted that all RPC-204-1 broadcasts contain inconsistencies when compared to real broadcasts, most commonly manifesting as erroneous locations and incorrect issue source of the warning.

RPC-204-2 appears to be a nuclear detonation, perceivable only to individuals within RPC-204's affected area. This "detonation" has never been observed to have an actual affect on the area, and for all intents and purposes, is also considered to be a hallucination. Despite this, cameras within RPC-204's affected area will capture both RPC-204-2 and its "aftermath". While RPC-204-2 is harmless, almost all affected subjects will act as if they are being affected by an actual nuclear explosion, experiencing things such as the explosion’s flash, intense heat, and “death”. When an individual affected by RPC-204 "dies", they will enter into a comatose state for a period of 4 hours. Upon the awakening from this coma, affected individuals will see the area as affected by RPC-204-2, showing signs of destruction equivalent to those caused by a nuclear warhead with a yield of approximately 70 kilotons. Individuals will then begin to scavenge the "wasteland" for items such as food, water, and weapons. Over the following days, individuals will start to seek out friends, attempting to form small groups. These groups will almost always form into "factions" based on different paraphernalia found within the "wasteland". If an unaffected individual enters RPC-204's affected area after the manifestation of RPC-204-2, they will not experience the hallucinations caused by RPC-204. However, individuals who are affected will begin to target unaffected individuals, referring to them as “demons". Due to this, all affected individuals are to be designated RPC-204-3. As of 7/5/1998, it has been discovered that this behavior only manifests if the unaffected individual enters the area affected by RPC-204 after all instances of RPC-204-3 have awoken from the comatose state caused by RPC-204-2.

Discovery: RPC-204 was discovered on 2/3/1997, when a video of a supposed nuclear detonation within the Czech Republic was uploaded onto the internet. Authority agents quickly discovered the location of this "detonation" and sent two operatives to the Czech Republic to investigate. When the operatives arrived, the locals all appeared to be alive, with no signs of damage to the town itself. The locals began to attack the agents, which they were able to evade. All civilians were sedated using anesthetic gas. RPC-204 was then spotted without its gas mask on. Its odd skin color, as well as it passiveness, led to the containment of RPC-204 by the Authority.
