According to the Myths, the Mekhane shared dominion over humanity with Yaldabaoth, the Broken God representing intellect and progress, while the Demiurge represented instinct and the more animalistic side of the humans.
The followers of Mekhane were known as the Mekhanites, and overtime many civilizations started to become more civilized and progressive, which greatly angered Yaldabaoth, who wanted to bring humanity back to a more animalistic state.
This led to the occult war between the Mekhanites and the early Sarkites, which caused the Bronze-age collapse.
Mekhane confronted Yaldabaoth during this war, and defeated the Demiurge by shattering himself into a "brass cage", trapping the other god in it. His shattered pieces spread across the Earth, alongside his followers who would form the Church of the Broken God.
Many of these pieces would later be classified as different SCP-objects by the Foundation.
Over the following centuries the Church would try to resurrect Mekhane by assembling the god of the many pieces, and the group came very close in 1942 near La Paz, Mexico.
The Church had gathered a great amount of pieces of their deity, but lacked his "heart", which led to the idea of asking The Factory built one for them. The heart was made, but the entity that was created was not the logical deity the Church had hoped for, but an aggressive being that started to consume everything it came across, including it's own followers.
The SCP Foundation contacted the Global Occult Coalition (back then known as the "Allied Occult Initiative") to destroy the entity which was achieved. This event was one of the biggest cover-ups the Foundation ever had to, which included massive amounts of amnesiacs and the rewriting of history.
- Mekhane could be considered to be one of the more benevolent deities in the SCP-universe, but his pure logic and intellect and lack of emotions could lead to catastrophic results.
- Mekhane could be partially responsible for the near extinction of SCP-1000, creatures who at the prehistoric times were the most advanced race on Earth even surpassing humanity today, while humanity were still savages. That was until a "trickster forest god" showed humanity the ability to use tools which caused the near extinction of SCP-1000. Although the being was identified as trickster forest god, the story is muddy, and given that Mekhane wanted humanity to develop intellect, it possible that the god might have been Mekhane.
- In the dead timeline of SCP-5000, in which the SCP Foundation declared war on humanity, the Foundation released all of the dangerous SCPs, which included SCP-3179, an organism made out of liquid metal capable to shapeshift and create smaller entities under its control. A number of members of the Church of Broken God mistook it as Mekhane and started a civil war within the church, since the other members didn't think that was Mekhane. This war prevented the church from helping the GOC in fighting the Foundation.
