|“||The Exile is futility and absurdity in flesh. The Exile is the workman, stomped upon by the nobility, the wanderer turned away from shelter, the child ignored by the parent, the lover abandoned, injustice visited. The Exile, reborn and turned back from Summer in perpetuity, swims in the pains of birth and death, struggling to reach equilibrium when none is to be found. Only when it awakens, when it is conscious, when it sees the truth of its eternal struggle, will it turn its pain to scorn and return it thrice-nine-fold. There is no struggle that cannot be overcome by scorn. No obstacle that cannot be brushed aside by rage and righteous indignation. When justice is served it will be served in fire and sharpened stone.||„|
SCP-682 is a large, vaguely reptile-like creature with potent regenerative and adaptive abilities. One of the most infamous SCPs known to the Foundation, SCP-682 is thought impossible to kill. SCP-682 has a hatred of all life, due to both viewing them as humans view cockroaches as well as having been tortured by them for decades, and because of this, it expresses extreme horror at humanoid life, and will attempt to kill most humanoid people on sight. SCP-682's regenerative capabilities and resilience are staggering, as it has been seen moving and speaking with over 95% of its body destroyed or rotted.
Though the Foundation knows little of SCP-682's origins, in reality, SCP-682's true name is Atanti-ql-Paneu, a Leviathan offspring of The Scarlet King and A'zieb, the fourth Scarlet Bride. After the Leviathans nearly destroyed the Taproots of the Tree of Knowledge, The All-Mighty caused the Flood, resetting the entire multiverse. However, due to accidentally sealing himself within the Grand Chamber of Sutkak, Atanti was spared. Atanti was later cast down to Earth by God and forced into his current form as a punishment for giving humanity fruit from the Tree of Knowledge, preventing him from ever dying, returning to his true form, or leaving Earth while causing all of humanity to endlessly seek his death.

Striking Strength: Small Building Class | At least Small Building Class, likely higher, Varies via Reactive Evolution, Adaptation, and Power Absorption | Hyperversal
Durability: Small Building level (Described as having extremely high strength), Regeneration, Reactive Evolution, Adaptation, and Immortality make it extremely difficult to kill (682's body is just the 3-Dimensional shell of an extradimensional being) | At least Small Building level, likely higher (Was unaffected by being struck multiple times by natural lightning), Varies via Reactive Evolution, Adaptation, and Power Absorption.

Standard Equipment: None
Intelligence: Genius conventionally (Able to engage in complex communication with SCP-079, a sentient and constantly learning and evolving AI.), Animalistic in combat (Has shown little by way of combat strategy other than wildly attacking in a rage) | Genius (Despite its reputation as a berserk monster, SCP-682 is actually extremely intelligent, with its intellect even being widely recognized by groups such as the Serpent's Hand. It has shown knowledge of numerous SCPs, some of which it has shown to have more knowledge on than the Foundation itself, even going so far as to engage in complex communication with SCP-079, a sentient and constantly learning and evolving AI. SCP-682 has also demonstrated vast knowledge of the multiverse and the supernatural due to retaining all of its memories from its past life as a Leviathan.)
Weaknesses: None notable | A few SCPs have been able to tame 682, including SCP-999, who literally tickled him into submission (Though this only worked for a very short time and was only due to 999's heritage as an offspring of the Scarlet King and the nature of its powers) and SCP-053, a little girl who temporarily rendered him docile (Though this is also due to 053's heritage as an offspring of the Scarlet King) | None notable

Note 1: SCP-682 being sent to the Ravelwoods for several years only took so long to escape due to the extremely extensive and powerful ritual used to send it there as well as the nature of the Ravelwoods itself, as the Ravelwoods runs parallel to the Wanderer's Library, is only accessible and escapable through temporarily constructed Ways, and the background magic rejecting that of the Library makes exit via Ways nigh-impossible. 682, however, cannot enter Ways and is barred from entering the Library at all, meaning that it escaped under its own power from a place that by all intents and purposes should have been impossible for it to escape.
Note 2: Regarding SCP-682's immortality, 682 is a shell bound to the 3-D world by 343, but the shell itself is a projection of 682's former self that is generated by 682's higher-dimensional consciousness.
