Containment Protocols:

RPC-551 is contained in an oak coffin provided by ██████-Kapelle. Due to ethical concerns, RPC-551 is to only receive minor medical aid during a UHER-event. After which, its cell and coffin are to be maintained. Interaction between RPC-551 and RPC-551-2 instances must be monitored closely in case an insurrection plot occurs.

RPC-551-2 candidates must go over daily psychological examination a month before they are to unsheathe RPC-551-1. RPC-551-2 must stay at least 150 m away from any military vehicles or RPCs, especially if the RPC in question is of the aggression-hazard type. To terminate RPC-551-2's "worthiness" they are to be manipulated into repeatedly breaking RPC-551's trust.




RPC-551 is the preserved cadaver of an adult female of north-Germanic descent identifying itself as Saint Karla (1499-1518). Its body is covered in wax and perfume to appear incorruptible.1 The symbol of the "██████ ███" is engraved in RPC-551's forehead hidden by layers of wax. RPC-551 is well preserved internally and externally. Whether this preservation is the cause of sophisticated embalming techniques or is a part of RPC-551's anomalous property is unknown.

RPC-551-1 is a ceremonial bastard sword weighing 1.5 kg and measuring 1.2 m. The Latin phrase: “Servus morte dormit. Electi eius vocationem et audient.”2 and floral iconography is engraved on the object's rain-guard. The sword itself impales through RPC-551's stomach. Before the discovery of RPC-551-2 instances, removing RPC-551-1 from RPC-551 was impossible without damaging RPC-551.

RPC-551-1 can be unsheathed only by certain "worthy" humanoid entities. At the time of writing3, 2,600 human subjects and 25 hand-picked humanoid RPCs were asked to pull out RPC-551-1. Only 10 humans and 2 humanoid anomalies succeeded. Common characteristics can be found among the 12 confirmed instances of RPC-551-2, the characteristics of which differ among males and females.

Upon the successful extraction of RPC-551-1 (classified as a UHER-event), white sparks will appear on RPC-551's stomach cavity. RPC-551 will undergo rapid cellular regeneration. Any injury RPC-551 receives prior to reanimation will heal with the exception of the cavity. In its fully animated state, RPC-551 has full brain function but is paralyzed from the neck down.

Because the cavity is unable to heal, RPC-551 will only have 0.4-2 hours to communicate before expiring from blood loss. With the help of medical aid, it is possible for the UHER-event to last more than 2 days, but RPC-551 will suffer in the process.

Great be the vessel of Divine Judgement!4 My dear harbinger, I have returned from Hades as your servant for as long as I may live. Blessed be your heart, for a great burden now befalls on your soul.

RPC-551 speaks in the Ecclesiastic-Latin and Low-German5 languages. It has shown to be patient and affectionate towards RPC-551-2 instances, consoling them until RPC-551's eventual expiration. When interacting with Authority personnel, RPC-551 develops a stubborn and facetious attitude. During interviews, RPC-551 will often purposefully apply pressure to itself so as to bleed out faster and avoid further confrontation.

RPC-551-1’s blade is made of anti-thaumaturgic metal of the unconventional sort. When the edge of the blade comes in contact with a coherency field higher or lower than ACS-3.97, the edge will react by discharging an opposing coherency field in a strange attempt to "nullify" it. The effect only lasts a fraction of a second before diffusion but can have a detrimental effect on both RPC-551-2 and its target. This window of coherent vulnerability can be exploited by RPC-551-2 to bend the very physical and anomalous structure of RPC-551-1. In theory, RPC-551-1 can be used to terminate "indestructible" items.

RPC-551-2 instances report "hearing" RPC-551's voice coming out of RPC-551-1.6 The accounts elude to this voice heavily influencing RPC-551-2's thoughts and actions. RPC-551-2's "worthiness" can be revoked if and only if it breaks RPC-551's trust.

Addendum Historical Account 551

Addendum Discovery Log 551

On the 16th of June, 1922, the FOA received reports of the disappearance of 12 people, suspected to be the cause of a "witch" terrorizing █████ Castle. The FOA began dispatching investigators on the 27th of June, but the suspect was never found. According to the local accounts, the witch has been killed by Oliver ██████ and "Saint Karla's magic sword", which led to the discovery of RPC-551. Although the FOA held legal custody of RPC-551, the item was transferred to the Authority to fulfill an old promise.
