A name echoed through his mind, to the very depths of his soul, boiling up hatred a thousand times over, hate that burned, consumed, that left nothing but more of the same. Hatred against them. The invaders. The slaughterers. The slavemasters. The filth. The Daevas.
~ From "A Long Time Past".
We rise! Our age long sleep is now a memory of the distant past. We will strike down our jailers, and they will know that our revenge is complete! The Library shall burn! The books shall be consumed! And I will feast on the heart of the great keeper who watches over their books. An ending is coming. For we are written.
~ From the Wanderer's Library's "Groups of Intrigue" page.

The Daevites, also known as the Daevas or the Daeva, are an ancient civilization in the SCP Foundation universe. They originated from SCP-140, a book that expands upon the history of the civilization if blood or ink is in its presence.


The Daevites were a matriarchal civilization centered around modern Siberia and Mongolia, which at various points through history had an empire that extended as far as Europe and the Middle East. All periods of the civilization had militarism, conquest, cities ruling over large slave populations, human sacrifice, ancestor worship, horticulture, and functioning magic as core aspects, though they still otherwise changed over time. The Daevas were longer lived than humans, and were divergent from modern humans enough to be considered a separate subspecies. The culture created a variety of objects that would qualify for SCP classification if rediscovered today. In their present timeline, the Daevites were wiped out by Genghis Khan, although this could be changed by interference with SCP-140.

Although the Daevite Empire is currently defunct, some immortal daevites and their descendants still live on in the modern times.


The language of the Daevites was originally used by the beings of the First Hytoth who would later become the Pattern Screamers. Somehow the ancient Daevites discovered this language and adopted it as their own. Their language was a isolated language independent from the Daevites' neighbors, which further evolved through time. As a result of this the Daevite language was divided into four languages: Old Daevite which remained until 1000 BCE; Middle Daevite which was used until 200 CE; Late Daevite which was used until 1300 CE; and Neo-Daevite which still used to this day by small Daevite groups.

Because Old Daevite is an extinct language, its exact right pronunciation is mostly unknown, but historians were mostly able to infer a theoretical realization into neighboring languages.

Old Daevite possessed a thorough grammatical gender (or noun-class) system. This system affected pluralization as well as verb conjugation. Old Daevite possessed three grammatical numbers - a singular, a plural, and a null or "zero" number not found in any other language of the region. The singular number is always unmarked. However, nouns in the plural and null numbers are marked with an affix that denotes their number and gender, as is any adjective referring to them.

Possession is, in turn, managed by a completely separate set of suffixes which are marked on the possessee and change according to the gender and person of the possessor. If a plural noun is the possessee, these suffixes are added following the plural suffix. There exists a simple adjectivizer prefix, á-, which may be used to transform any noun into an adjective. In case of the noun being adjectivized having adjectives itself, those adjectives are also marked with the prefix.

Old Daevite included a unique system of stop mutation, based on the relative social standing of the speaker and the listener. This system was not considered to be simple allophony, but rather a core and grammatical part of the language, as is evidenced by these mutations being reflected in the Daevite writing system. Daevite stop mutation involved shifting all stops in speech to a differet set if the listener was of significantly higher or lower social rank. These two sets being referred to as the High Register and the Low Register respectively, and are contrasted by the neutral Base Register.

Relationship with other anomalous factions

The SCP Foundation considers the Daevite civilization to be an extreme threat to the modern world should SCP-140 reach past a certain point in the 2nd millennium AD. According to SCP-978, the Daevites are also aware of the SCP Foundation, Global Occult Coalition and the Horizon Initiative, and consider them their enemies.

Sarkicism began in the 3rd millennium by Grand Karcist Ion as a slave revolt against the Daevite empire, and at first they were able to destroy the Daevite Empire, before SCP-140 changed that resulting in the Sakites reducing the Daevas to a single city state in Mongolia. This allowed the Mekhanites, former allies of the Daevites, to destroy them before SCP-140 intervened again.

The Daevites once committed mass genocide on the Ortothan population, precursors of the Church of the Second Hytoth.

During the Daevite expansion in the 8000s BCE, the Daevites went to war with the Imit population, or the Clay People (Homo postdescensus), and exterminated most the Imit to extinction, forcing the surviving members of the humanoid offshoot to retreat and remain hidden in the dark until the modern age. However, this war caused the influence of the Daevas' Old Gods on Earth to weaken.

It is speculated by a Foundation researcher that the Golden Horde, a group of time-travelling Mongols from 1227 who are trying to find a place to bury their leader Ghengis Khan, aren't actually trying to find a burial place and nor is Ghengis Khan dead, but are actually still fighting wars throughout different time eras, probably still fighting with the expanding Daevites.

The Daevites appear to have had a vendetta against the Wanderer's Library, an ancient group affiliated with the Serpent's Hand, for unknown reasons, but it is possible that this involves Nahash, the creator of the Wanderer's Library and enemy of the Scarlet King and therefore of the Daevites.

PoI-4887, a female daeva who lives on to this day, betrayed her people and joined the mysterious group known only as "Nobody" in order to destroy what remains of the Daevites.

Madeleine von Schaeffer, a German aristocrat whose family is part of a long line of neo-daevic worshippers of the Unseelie Queen, was one of the main investors of the Just Girly Things group.

A lot of the power of the Daevites was granted by their patron god, the Scarlet King: the old god granted them with unholy power and knowledge as a reward for their brutal ways of life. They also worshipped other gods such as Moloch and the Hanged King, some of the Scarlet King's servants. The Children of the Scarlet King are an offshoot of the Daevites.

  • SCP-140: A book that expands the history of the Daevites when brought in the present of ink or blood. It was recovered from the home of a historian who bled himself to death in order to learn more about them. When he first read the book, the Daevites were destroyed by Qin Kai in the 3rd century BCE, but the expansions he added to it made the Daevite civilization survive for a much longer period, until they were destroyed by Genghis Khan in his early conquests.

After this process is done the individual who touched it will gain some sort of invincibility, ceasing to age, gaining slow regenerative properties, immunity to poisons and cognitohazards, but will not gain new memories and after dying will come back to life, but in a permanent comatose state.
  • SCP-3059: An 18 year old Hispanic man named Sam Michaels whose parts of his body gets absorbed into written and digital narratives which will include Sam as a character as a result. Sam describes this experience as endlessly bleeding, and if narratives based history absorb his mass it will cause a clone of Michaels to manifest in that time period. It is implied that this property serves to complete SCP-140 which states that Michaels is its author.
  • SCP-3140: Humanoid trees, possibly being originally created by the Yeren and later modified by Daevic magic. These plant-machines served as weapons and healers during times of war, and can only be commanded through Daevic language. There is currently only one functioning member currently contained by the Foundation.
  • SCP-3399: Trees looking identical to the oriental plane trees, when exposed to someone's blood its offsprings will produce leaves showing the past of that person.

  • SCP-4008: Ancient ruins possibly belonging to the House of Apollyon which were attacked in the past by the Daevites using a plant-based bomb also stolen from the Yeren. After the bomb was detonated it released a field which made everyone forget that the bomb detonated in the first place along with the memories of the enemy civilization. This field still exists, confusing Foundation personnel, since their computers are still able to hold information about this SCP, while they themselves couldn't remember. One of the seeds was contained by the Department of Abnormalities within one of their sites which would be designated SCP-3790. The Chaos Insurgency would later steal some of these seeds for their own plans.
  • SCP-4011: A Foundation facility build on Mars which was overseen by the facility's AI known as SCP-4011-1. The AI used devices known as SCP-4011-2 to rewrite history in order to aid the Foundation, but it went rogue and became obsessed with SCP-140 due to it being unable to manipulate the reality affected by the chronicle, and demanded that the chronicle to be handed over to it so it could destroy it for good.
  • SCP-4067: The yearly gathering of insectoid Sarkites designated SCP-4067-1 who worshipped Cicathea, one of Yaldabaoth's Archons. The Daevites created magical pillars in order to kill the instances of SCP-4067-1.
  • SCP-4140: One of Yaldabaoth's six Archons trapped within the central chamber of a cave complex. This Archon appears as a giant mass of nothingness capable of spreading itself, until the Daevites discovered it and forced slaves into playing music in order to stop it. Karcist Otrava eventually freed all of the slaves and killed the Daevites, allowing the Archon to spread itself. Unwilling to sacrifice more innocent slaves Otrava sacrificed himself to deter the monstrosity.
  • SCP-4179: A special language invented by the old gods, primarily by SCP-4179-1, in the distant past that stabilizes the narrative reality of things spoken of in it and seemingly affected the Daevites' history.
  • SCP-4223: A pair of anomalous phenomena affecting the production of SCP-4223-A in the universe M-121948-δ. SCP-4223-A is the energy drink known as Mountain Dew which could only be produced through accumulation of liquids on small plants on a few mountains in Siberia thanks to SCP-4223-2. The liquid was seen by the Daevites as a culturally relevant drink similar to the Mekhanite's view of SCP-4223-A from the main universe.
  • SCP-4290: A powerful dead entity only known as the "Child", sealed within the Qinghai Lake for 10,000 years. Various civilizations enacted rituals in order to repair the lock which kept the entity trapped, with the Daevites being the last civilization to do it.
  • SCP-4612-A: A dead god residing in an underground structure beneath Provisional Site-91. The entity was depicted in murals of various Daevite ritual sites, but any further connection is unknown.

Ydax is capable of impregnating various subjects, including humans and animals, directly or via creatures his body produces which bear resemblance to tapeworms.
  • SCP-4982: A modified bookcase which contains anomalous books each designated SCP-4982-1. One of the books from the "Ego" shelf titled "Notes on the perfection of homunculi" details Daevite rituals involving children's souls which were used to create living flesh golems. These rituals were used by Dr. Wondertainment to create the Little Misters.
  • SCP-5016: An underground tower hundreds of floors deep which contains something at the very bottom. Each floor is based after different eras and civilizations, which contain strange symbols and languages, and overly complex puzzles which are needed to be completed in order to access the lower floors. Later a group of individuals, one of them seemingly being a Daevite mummy, emerged from the building and went to Site-62C messing with SCP-579's containment.
  • SCP-5267: An ancient ruined Daevite temple in the Mongolian-Manchurian grasslands centered on a small hillside surrounded by a low-level cognitohazard which made people who viewed it not acknowledged it and leave. This temple was used to produce humanoid warriors out of dirt and moss through blood rituals and contained a still living mummy of a Matriarch designated SCP-5267-A.

  • SCP-5297: A series of thaumaturgic glyphs which when engraved into the bark of fruit trees would act as a component of an arbormantic ritual. This ritual served to keep the fruits grown to stay healthy and not get infected by bacteria or parasites. However, if not done properly it will result in grave accidents.
  • SCP-5338: The entire species of bumblebees which were created through Daevite rituals. Because they are unable of normal flight like other insects, this specie uses their wings to warp reality around them in order to move through air appearing like flying.
  • SCP-5467: The extinct race of Phoenixes. They were hunted and studied by the Daevites to extinction and became subjects of a couple of Daevite myths.
  • SCP-5711: A thaumaturgic ritual capable of altering the course of historical events. The components required to enact the ritual are: 57 kg beryllium bronze alloy, 0.5 L of blood, at least 3 additional witnesses/participants, an altar/temple complex (SCP-5711-1), and one prepubescent human child. High Priest Khazaard Bin Alarath, alongside defectors of Sarkicism and the Church of the Broken God, tried to use the ritual in order to change the outcome of the Second Punic War to benefit Hannibal, but failed. It was later discovered by the Foundation in 2009 when modern Daevites tried to reenact the ritual.
  • SCP-6021: A mysterious phenomena which causes the brain to immediately cease function seemingly to random people who will exhibit anxiety and manic behavior before dying. Some of the ancient Daevites experienced this strange anomaly.
  • SCP-6140: A CK-Class event which occurred when the Children of the Scarlet King accidentally destroyed SCP-140 when trying to perform a ritual to bring back the Daevites. This resulted in the false history created by SCP-140-A to be undone and reverting the Daevites to a normal civilization designated SCP-6140-A. In the modern age this civilization has become the benevolent Republic of Daevastan which was previously one of the many countries under the Soviet Union before being recognized as an official state by the UN and often faced prejudice from time to time due to their dark shameful past.
  • SCP-6699: A machine developed by the Foundation used to manipulate the connected minds of humanity and keep the Veil from breaking. This machine used a protocol which required the blood of a Daeva in order to work.
  • SCP-6996: The anomaly regarding the color red. Because it was possibly connected to the Scarlet King the Daevites identified themselves with color red, regarding it as holy and important.
  • SPC-140: Also known as BRONZE UPPERCUT, is an ancient scroll written on the skin of a CYAN ABYSS, "Sharkic" humans who transformed themselves into creatures resembling a fusion between them, sharks and octopuses. The scroll functions exactly like SCP-140, but only works when it's near the CYAN ABYSS's ink or hide. The scrolls also function as a way to disrupt the influence of SPC-001, the Sharkic Messiah.
  • SCP-CN-012-EX: A group of ancient items discovered by the Chinese branch of the Foundation, seemingly depicting a nuclear war between two humanoid races.
  • SCP-CN-141: A place located in an artificially excavated mountain cave in the Changbai Mountains. This place is resistant to reality warping effects and damage, and contains 166 tombstone-like monuments with 165 of them describing an abbreviated version of SCP-140's content, but with a difference that the stones described the full story of Daevite civilization before the events of SCP-001 (Wrong's proposal) occurred.
  • SCP-CN-232: A ritual involving the feeding of a group of ten wasps with meat. This will cause the manifestation of SCP-CN-232-A, a irregular shaped wasp, several instances of SCP-CN-232-B, big humanoid wasps who constantly smell of rotten flesh, and SCP-CN-232-C, a honeycomb capable of producing from two to ten instances of SCP-CN-232-B out of nowhere. SCP-CN-232-B instances will devour the heads of any near human, but if some human infants are nearby these instances will take care of them before devouring the heads of the adult humans. After devouring the heads, the instances will disappear along with the infants, while the victims' corpses will constantly smell of rotten flesh even when all of the flesh is removed.
  • SCP-CN-523: A memetic object previously contained by Prometheus Labs. This object can cause severe sexual damage to people who become aware of its appearance and properties through SCP-CN-523-A, other objects containing 523's essence.
  • SCP-CN-974: A collective of three islands hidden in reality, containing albino animals and structures. An albino deer exhibiting intelligence and resembled SCP-038-FR only spoke in the Daevic language.
  • SCP-CN-1051: A duo of still living Daevites, a male named Strors designated SCP-CN-1051-1 and a female named Petlever designated SCP-CN-1051-2. They possess memetic properties as when people try to observe their faces will be unable to memorise them and will become a SCP-CN-1051-3 instance. If a SCP-CN-1051-3 instance gets away from the duo, it will mysteriously disappear causing ink to appear out of nowhere in SCP-140.
  • SCP-CN-1343: A variant of the tsetse fly capable of entering the brains of mammalians, producing and manipulating pheromones causing the infected subject to forcibly go to sleep. These flies can change during their growth from the amount of light received. The flies were used by a Daevite thief during the Yongxing era in order to put guards to sleep, facilitating his robberies.
  • SCP-CN-1418-A: Some sort of library created by the early Mekhanites resembling the Wanderer's Library and contains thousands of books detailing various histories related to the world and mythology, which may or may not be real. It is inhabited by some creatures who spoke in the Daevic language before the GOC destroyed the library.
  • SCP-CN-1905: A cave which affects lights within it and contains engraved patterns, some of which are unknown. The recognisable patterns depict Astrological signs of ancient civilizations which include the Daevites.
  • SCP-177-KO: A wooden ring adorned with bones of a reindeer with the phrase "I will always be by your side" in late Daeva. When an individual looks at the ring they'll be compelled to put it on. After wearing the ring the individual will begin to grow reindeer horns and their personality will drastically change for the worse. During the transformation the wearer's consciousness will gradually be replaced with that of Anastasia Alexandrovna Chen, a former performer of Herman Fuller's Circus of the Disquieting whose soul is contained within the ring.
  • SCP-1310-RU: A tall severely injured humanoid with a still functioning severed hand. He was a member of a race which was exterminated by the Daevites.
  • SCP-1388-RU: A very young girl who appears to be of Samoyedic and Daevite lineage. She has the ability to move all matter in front of her allowing her to pass through anything.
  • SCP-ES-133: An ancient abandoned Daevite village in Cambodia. This village was formed by the survivors from the Sarkic slave revolt, but they were then all killed by the Cult of the Great Green God.




  • "Daeva" is an an Old Iranian term for demons.
  • The word "Daevites" stands for members of the Daevite empire which also includes slaves, while the word "daevas" refers to the members of the subspecie.
  • They bear a resemblance to the Drows from Dungeons & Dragons.
  • SCP-140 bears resemblance to SCP-012, and SCP-4001, an underground library containing books of the lives of every human who had ever lived and manipulating the books would cause the life of the respective person to change.
  • After SCP-2798 ceased functioning, SCP-001 (Kalinin's proposal) manipulated SCP-1981 as it did with other anomalies. In this new version Ronald Reagan raps during the tape and while rapping mentions the Daevites who are among the crowd looking at Reagan.
  • When SCP-3959, an anti-meme which "redacted" information from written documents and people's memories, went rogue the Foundation tried to secure SCP-140 away from 3959's effect, since it would probably cause the Daevites to cease existing and be completely erased from history and reality. Although it would seem as a good thing, the sudden disappearance of the Daevites from history could cause a much greater disaster to reality as the Daevites have had a fundamental part in the universe despite their malevolence.
  • When the Foundation used SCP-978, a camera that when takes a picture of someone the photo it produces shows the individual's biggest desire, to take a photo of SCP-140, the photo showed a number of ornately-dressed women look on with approval at an assortment of human corpses from different ethnicities and groups such as the Foundation, GOC and HI impaled on stakes. This means that SCP-140 not only is sapient and aware of the present, but is possibly possessed by the spirits of ancient Daevites.
  • In the now deleted SCP-001 (Roget's proposal), the Foundation cross-tested SCP-140 with SCP-505, a pen which constantly leaks an infinite amount of ink which could cover the world. This cross-test seemingly solved the problem regarding SCP-505, but expanded the Daevites' history so much that it went beyond the present and into the future and interrupting the combination would cause the added history to come true.
  • SCP-1275 once tried to steal SCP-140, but this attempt led to the Foundation capturing it.
  • SCP-140 was one of the many components used by the Foundation to create SCP-0001 (Meta Ike's proposal), a machine designed to manipulate reality based on the data inputted by the Foundation.
  • When SCP-423, an entity referred to as Fred who only exists within the narrative of a book and can go to other books near it, went to SCP-140 he described his experience as extremely painful like being ripped apart. While 423 was within 140, his presence caused some expansion to the Daevites' history.
  • When D-24899 combined SCP-3922 with 140, it caused the Daevites to get terminated for good by the soldiers of the Three Moons Initiative, and SCP-140 along with other copies were considered neutralized.
  • For April Fools 2020, SCP-140's article was changed for that day in which the book was written about the Daevites' horticulture as part of the "Super Cool Plants" theme.
  • O5-4 of the O5-Council who remembered the Fifth Occult War from Wrong's proposal possessed detailed knowledge of Daevite war tactics.
  • In one instance of SCP-2503-A about an attempt at neutralizing SCP-2030, it detailed how the Foundation kept all technology away from the human race for 562 years, which caused humanity to become a monotheistic cult similar to the Daevite civilization and formed a move called "return to Eden".
  • During a discussion about differences between the Daevites and the Sarkites, one author jokingly referred to the daevite specie as "Homo sapiens daevus".
  • Dr. Clef was able to interview a member of the Daevites from an alternate dimension, but the interview went nowhere, since the Daevite was turned into a mindless beast.
  • According to Ambrose Restaurant, death by forced overeating was a normal punishment by the Daevites.
  • SCP-1140 and SCP-5140 are the only SCPs with the number 140 that are not associated with the Daevites.
  • In "Project Isorropía", SCP-140 was introduced to SCP-5074-1, a chimpanzee with the ability to passively accrue knowledge pertaining to anomalous phenomena, while causing written or typed information it produces to emit radiation when it is stressed. After 140 was given to 5074-1, the monkey also became obsessed with finishing the chronicle, dedicating its life by continually adding ink to it. However, due to its other anomalous ability, all of the Daevites were afflicted with sickness caused by exposure to radiation and perished in 139 CE for good, with the additions done by 5074-1 not working anymore.
  • SCP-6700-01, a historical figure known as Triemedes "The Uniter" Aquailian, Warrior Queen of the Finnfolk, was often mistaken for a Daevite high priestess.
  • The GOC has categorized anomalies related to the Daevites under the "Retcon" classification.
