|“||I had dreams of the queen wonders that lived inside the hearts of love and silent treatments of all the elderly that I knew were once whole. I seek the revelations of all that the holy told to the unwise in the dreams of cold embers in sunlight that fade across lakes of black blood and snakes that eat the loaves of children from lamb trees in autumn. Endless suffering is the woe of ignorant men who never lack to seek the depth of their own hearts and only see the wealth of a poor world suffering to flay its own back in knife wounds of silver and brutal gladness. The nightmare is a dream to the nameless slug that wanders across minefield and the remains of deer and kings. Nightshade is shadows in all honest blinks that sort through the bile of newborn plagues, instant warmth is a mother's milk in dreams before anything was ever evil. In seconds the sun is beating like drums in all hearts eat the ear of noise. The sensual violence of lust is all the assurance you will ever need to know the worth of life.||„|
|~ SCP-058's ramblings.|
SCP-058 also referred to as the Heart of Darkness, is a Keter-class object under the SCP Foundation's containment. It is a creature resembling a bovine heart with barbed tentacles and a scorpion stinger.
SCP-058 resembles a large bovine heart, with four long legs and four barbed tentacles protruding from its form. It also has a scorpion tail and stinger protruding from the rear.
Behavior and Procedure
SCP-058 is an extremely hostile and aggressive creature that continuously works to destroy its surroundings, living or not. It uses its barbed whips, which can extend to enormous lengths and swing over 200 miles per hour, to cause damage to its surroundings. Even when incapacitated, it is still extremely dangerous and harmful. SCP-058 can run on horizontal, diagonal, and even vertical surfaces at speeds over 55 miles per hour.
SCP-058 is constantly talking through unknown means, regardless of the situation. It speaks with the voice of an elderly British male with a slight lisp and a deep tone, and its pace and tone never change regardless of its actions or surroundings. The subjects it speaks about appear to have no correlation to anything happening around it, nor add up to any conclusion, point or the moment at hand.
SCP-058 was found at a Foundation site, where it killed much personnel. It proceeded to attack a nearby town and killed presumably hundreds of civilians. It was eventually incapacitated by falling rubble and taken into custody. It breached containment sometime later, leading to more deaths and injuries until it was stopped by being pinned under a tank.
So far, SCP-058 is responsible for over 163 Foundation deaths.
SCP-058 is kept in a five meter by five meter by five meter reinforced steel and concrete cube. Repairs are to be done every 60 minutes while SCP-058 is dormant, and every 15 minutes while active. It is to be fed a live cow every three days. Should it breach containment, on-site nuclear devices are to be deployed.
All of the attempts at interviewing SCP-058 have failed and resulted in casualties.
SCP-058 seems to be sophisticated, intelligent, and persuasive when observing its speech, but it is extremely violent, homicidal, unpredictable, and destructive in every other nature. It constantly seeks out to destroy everything around it for no known reason, though its speech does not even reflect this.
- SCP-058 was placed #4 on Tat's TopVideo's Top 22 Scariest SCP II. It was the first video to feature a 3D animated model of SCP-058, which is the design for some of the pictures on this page.
- In the now deleted SCP-001 (Roget's Proposal), SCP-058 was cross-tested with SCP-1983. The heart was captured and suspended inside SCP-1983-1 by SCP-1983-2, but the repeatedly retaliated against them.
- SCP-058 is one of the few SCPs whose real authors are unknown after their import into the SCP Wiki.
