Registered Phenomena Code: 294


A pup instance of RPC-294.

Object Class: Gamma-Orange

Hazard Types: Aggression Hazard, Grouped Hazard, Contact Hazard, Corrosive Hazard, Extreme Temperature Hazard

Containment Protocols:
Due to the nature of RPC-294, it is impossible to contain fully mature instances of RPC-294. As a result, only very young instances of RPC-294 are to be temporarily contained for research purposes and harvesting of heat produced by RPC-294 for energy. An instance of RPC-294 is to be contained within a 15m3 standard aquarium, created with tungsten. Instead of water, however, the aquarium is to be filled with magma. If an instance of RPC-294 grows above a 4-meter threshold during research, that instance of RPC-294 is to be terminated. As further containment being unfeasible.

Instances of RPC-294 are to be given pure iron ore proportional to 30% of their body weight every 72 hours. Due to previous incidents, under no circumstances are instances of RPC-294 to interact with one another. Unless under authorization by Personnel with level 2 clearance level or higher, for further experimentation regarding the social tendencies of RPC-294.

Description: RPC-294 instances are silicon-based life-forms that live deep within the interior of the earth's mantle. Instances of the anomaly physically resemble Isurus oxyrinchus1 to some degree. However, When dissected, instances of RPC-294 are shown to not possess any internal organs, but instead, are completely hollow, void of any organic martial. Instead, RPC-294 is composed entirely of an unknown type of igneous rock (RPC-294-1).

It is currently unknown how RPC-294 operates biologically, there have been three proposed hypotheses among the research division as to how RPC-294 functions without any organic material. Refer to Addendum|B for further information.

RPC-294-1 is a previously unidentified igneous rock that makes up the entire body of an instance of RPC-294. RPC-294-1 has a dark color and rough texture, similar to obsidian and weighs prominently 8.5 kilograms per 1^^3 meters. After an extensive investigation, it has been shown that RPC-294-1 possess anomalous properties independent of RPC-294. The following anomalous properties have been recorded after extensive research:

  • Extreme resistance to heat.
  • Extreme pressure resistance.

Refer to addendum RPC-294-1/A and experiments RPC-294-1-1 through RPX-294-1-2 for further details.

RPC-294 typical activity is not fully understood. Due to the location of RPC-294 and the fact that mature instances produce great amounts of heat, it is impossible for living adult instances of RPC-294 to be examined. As a result, the only specimens that can consistently be collected for study are fragments of adult instances that surface via volcanic activity, or very young instances of RPC-294 that have recently hatched on the surface. It is unknown why young instances swim so close to the Earth's crust, however, it is theorized to be a way to keep young away from more mature instances.

Captured instances of RPC-294 appear to not be carnivorous, instead; requiring substances from extracted iron-ore. It is currently unknown how instances of RPC-294 absorb iron ores, as instances do not possess any internal components required for digestion. Instead, iron ore ingested is broken down to a molecular level and absorbed. If RPC-294 does not absorb any iron ore within two-week intervals, RPC-294 will cease all functions and disassemble into nothing, but RPC-294-1 over a period of █ days. Currently, it is unknown how or why RPC-294 consumes iron ore, however, it is believed to be the substance that allows there silicon-based body to retain its structural integrity.


Aftermath of Experiment RPC-294-1-1

Addendum|A: As of █/█/2008, all attempts of harvesting of RPC-294-1 shall henceforth need the approval of a member with security clearance of 3 or higher, due to the discovery that RPC-294-1 is anomalous in of itself. Any unauthorized attempt of further harvesting of RPC-294-1 will result in severe punishment.
