SCP-096, colloquially known as "The Shy Guy," is not just another entry in the vast database of the SCP Foundation. It stands out as one of the most enigmatic and terrifying entities. The SCP Foundation, for those unfamiliar, is a global organization with a clear mandate: Secure, Contain, Protect. Their mission is to keep anomalous objects, entities, and phenomena away from the public eye, ensuring the normalcy of our world. SCP-096 is one of these anomalies, and its story is both fascinating and chilling.
Origin of SCP-096
The origins of SCP-096 are as mysterious as the creature itself. Discovered in a remote mountain range, it was initially found in a dormant state, almost as if it was hibernating. The terrain was rugged, and the climate was harsh, making the discovery even more unexpected. Why was it there? Was it its natural habitat, or was it trying to hide from something? The answers to these questions remain elusive. The team that found SCP-096 took extreme precautions during its retrieval, given the rumors surrounding its dangerous nature.
At first glance, SCP-096 might seem like a malnourished human. Standing tall, it has an emaciated frame with skin so pale it's almost translucent. Its arms are disproportionately long, and its face is devoid of any facial features, save for its eyes, which lack pupils. This gives SCP-096 a ghostly, almost spectral appearance. But don't let its frail look deceive you; this creature possesses physical capabilities that defy logic.

Behavior and Characteristics
SCP-096 is often called "The Shy Guy" because of its aversion to being seen. If someone views its face, either directly or via any visual medium, it enters a state of extreme distress. After a short period, SCP-096 will begin to chase the person who viewed its face, regardless of the distance. It will not stop or be deterred until it reaches its target, at which point it will violently eliminate them. After the deed is done, SCP-096 will become docile once again, often showing signs of great emotional distress.
Encounters with SCP-096
There have been several encounters with SCP-096, each painting a grim picture of its relentless nature. The first recorded encounter was by a group of unsuspecting hikers. One of them accidentally captured SCP-096's image in a photograph. They were unaware of the grave mistake they had made until it was too late. SCP-096, from its dormant state, became a creature of rage and pursued them with an intent to kill.
The Alarming Speed of SCP-096
What makes SCP-096 even more terrifying is its speed. Once it's set on a target, it can achieve speeds that are humanly impossible. Its long limbs allow it to cover vast distances in a short time, and obstacles that would hinder a normal human don't seem to slow it down. This makes escaping SCP-096 almost impossible.
Given the extreme threat posed by SCP-096, the SCP Foundation has devised strict containment procedures. It's housed in a specially designed cell where no direct visual contact can be made. All recordings and photographs of SCP-096 are strictly prohibited and are to be destroyed immediately.
Theories and Speculations
The enigmatic nature of SCP-096 has given rise to numerous theories. Some researchers believe its violent reactions are a defense mechanism, while others speculate it might be driven by a deeper, more complex emotion. Its origins, too, are a subject of debate. Some theorize it's an alien entity, while others believe it's a result of some twisted scientific experiment gone wrong.
The SCP Foundation's Role
The SCP Foundation plays a pivotal role in the containment of SCP-096. They've developed state-of-the-art containment measures, including surveillance, reinforced containment cells, and a dedicated task force. Their primary goal is to ensure SCP-096 never breaches containment, as the consequences would be catastrophic.
Research and Experiments
Despite the dangers, the SCP Foundation continues its research on SCP-096. They aim to understand its nature better and, if possible, find a way to neutralize it. However, this research is not without risks. Many researchers have met their untimely demise while studying SCP-096.
SCP-096, "The Shy Guy," remains an enigma. Its unpredictable nature, combined with its terrifying abilities, makes it one of the most dangerous entities under the SCP Foundation's watch. It serves as a grim reminder of the unknown dangers lurking in the shadows of our world.

I love my Mothman plushy! He’s so cute and fuzzy. The wings are the best part, so soft! The only problem is keeping them away from my pups! (And the catastrophic bad omen of having him nearby) 🤣
This Fresno Nightcrawler Stuffed Cryptid is the perfect companion for camping trips. It is cozy, charming, and adventurous. It looks like it belongs in the woods and blends in with nature.

Love how furry and fluffy the stuffed cryptids are.
these are so well made, you can feel the quality as soon as you open the package. the eyes are beaded on very securely and despite how fluffy they look, they still have minimal shedding which is super convenient. obviously adorable, but also extremely worth the price. don’t hesitate to buy!
