SCP-1790 (also known as Reincarnating Cultist & Layla) is a Keter level SCP imprisoned by the SCP Foundation, and it is considered as one of the most dangerous SCPs ever in the Foundation's containment. It takes form as a lead cultist and can revive itself after its destruction.
This being can return to life whenever it dies by possessing a human infant. Seemingly human, it uses each lifespan to found a powerful cult and eventually institutes ritualized mass murder and Human Sacrifice. When it is not stopped, SCP-1790 will direct its followers on large-scale mass murder campaigns against the general population before abandoning the cult and moving on to start a new one.
Implied to be Layla from the Arabic tale of Layla and Majnun, SCP-1790's only purpose in life is to create as much bloodshed as possible so that its mad love "rises anew from the slaughter".
SCP-1790 was the ringleader of a group of Thuggee cultists in 1893 after British authorities claimed to be the reincarnation of the last two Thuggee leaders. He was transported to Great Britain and placed in custody there until his death of natural causes in 1899.
SCP-1790 is currently in the form of an Irish woman, who was arrested by the British police after a series of strangulations were traced back to her, and later referred to the Foundation.
