|“||Does it matter which branch the bird takes flight from? The bird is unburdened by the weight of the tree. This branch, that branch, it does not matter. No branch is special. No branch is particular. Does the mountain say to the ant, “you have slighted me?” Does the mountain think anything of the inconvenience of an ant? I have seen an infinite shore, one that stretches out before us beyond what the mind can comprehend. Each grain of sand on that beach, each droplet of water and molecule of air is a story to be told. Each is a song to be sung. Each of them is full of life, of laughter, of misery, of hate. They are all the same, even as they are all different. I pity you. You cling to this horrid consciousness because you fear slipping into the darkness. But the darkness is sleep, and beyond sleep is peace. A trillion grains of sand. A trillion trillion grains of sand. Narratives, each. Songs to be sung. No man has ever heard the eternal harmony of them all at once. You can hear it though, can’t you?||„|
|~ From SCP-3812's second personality|
SCP-3812 is a powerful, reality altering entity, previously known as Sam Howell; a non-anomalous African-American human being who was believed to have died in 1996, and was reported to have raised out of its grave and disappeared shortly after its death.
SCP-3812 demonstrates vast, reality altering abilities, although they are coupled with severe mental problems; one of which includes an extremely advanced Eigenmann-Veitor schizophrenia complex. It is unknown how SCP-3812 acquired its current abilities, but a message received by Foundation Overwatch Command on a secure server implies that it was created by an entity native to a higher "narrative", who created the lower narrative SCP-3812 inhabited, and attempted to make it "supersede" everything that supersedes it, causing SCP-3812 to enter into a state of constant ascension throughout the countless layers of reality. Its mental problems seem to originate from "overexposure to narrative", as a being with human intelligence is unable to perceive higher levels of reality without mental modification to allow for such a feat.
Powers and Stats
Tier: High 1-A
Name: SCP-3812, "A Voice Behind Me", Sam Howell
Origin: SCP Foundation
Classification: Keter Class Anomalous Entity
Powers and Abilities: Superhuman Physical Characteristics, Reality Warping, Conceptual Manipulation (Implied to have erased an entire concept - which existed as far as the 1980s - from reality and the collective consciousness of all sentient beings), Teleportation, Space-Time Manipulation (Constantly creates spatial and temporal anomalies, which can be accompanied by sudden outbursts capable shifting or heavily damaging local space-time), Matter Manipulation, Energy Manipulation, Weather Manipulation, Void Manipulation (Can erase things to the point that all memory of them is lost, and only vague, fractured remembrances remain in human minds), Explosion Manipulation, Higher-Dimensional Manipulation, Creation, Shapeshifting, Telepathy, Telekinesis, Teleportation, Acausality, Plot Manipulation, Law Manipulation, Physics Manipulation, Resistance to Power Nullification (SCP-3812 was completely unaffected by an anti-metaphysical field generated by an unknown SCP whose remnants alone gave origin to SCP-239), Gravity Manipulation (Was unfazed after walking through a naked singularity), Void Manipulation and Plot Manipulation (Was completely unable to be undone by an entity known as "Ben", who wrote down and established the laws of SCP-3812's narrative, and he [SCP-3812] effortlessly resisted all of its attempts of assassination)
Attack Potency: High Outerverse level (SCP-3812 constantly transcends itself and the narrative it is contained in. It had transcended SCP-001 for a considerable amount of time when it was first contained, and continues to transcend higher narrative levels. One of 3812's alternate personalities has stated that the entity will eventually rise above the entirety of creation and the infinite hierarchy of narratives that comprise it, continuing to supersede itself endlessly even after that)
Speed: Irrelevant (Each narrative level transcends the notion of times of the lower narratives, including all of their temporal dimensions)
Lifting Strength: Irrelevant
Striking Strength: High Outerversal
Durability: High Outerverse level
Range: High Outerversal
Standard Equipment: None
Intelligence: Unknown. SCP-3812 displays various signs of inability to properly perceive their surroundings, discern the difference between the real and imagined, and differentiate between living and dead beings
Weaknesses: Suffers from various severe mental problems, possibly due to "overexposure to narrative", and seems to possess a split personality. Additionally, it is unable to accurately perceive the world, and is forced to alter reality to diminish the discrepancy between how it perceives something, and the way that something is in actuality
- Destroyed an unknown SCP whose remnants alone became SCP-239.
- It is hypothesized that a being such as SCP-3812 could potentially provoke a "PK-Class “All-In-One” Existential Pandaemonium Event”, which would consist in all lower narratives being collapsed into a single "meta space-time", resulting in their parts becoming interwinned in such an incomprehensible way that the boundaries between all lower realities would cease to exist completely.
