SCP-444-JP, also known as the Scarlet Bird, is an antagonist in the SCP mythos. It is an unclassed phenomenon with an ego that escaped from the SCP Foundation's containment. Its main body in reality is just a word, but its true identity is a thought body in the form of a scarlet bird, which possesses the person who knows the word, eats that person, and escaped from hallucination world.
SCP-444-JP, when it was once raging as a grand cognitive disaster, was sealed the soul into a single word by Sakuranushi, and further sealed off by breaking it apart. However, the cognitive disaster learned about the power of words and how they affect people, and eventually became a SCP that "invades people's minds through words, eating them up from the inside and spreading disaster".
SCP-444-JP was written on a defeated notepad at the JOICL's base in a certain town. The memo with SCP-444-JP on it at the time of discovery was torn to pieces and was thought to have been destroyed before the JOICL abandoned the base. One of the Foundation's task force that has taken control of the base discovers a peace of the memo and read it. The task force officer who read it was exposed to abnormality and was placed in isolation, but later escaped from the hallucination world on his own and returned to normal duties. But then, the officer suddenly started killing others in the vicinity. The officer kept saying, "Red bird, it still does not fly", and the officer was taken into custody for questioning. As a result, it was discovered that he suffered from significant intellectual regression and severe obsessive-compulsive disorder, as well as a complete recovery of memories from the hallucinatory world that should have been processed. Later, the officers who had been researching SCP-444-JP started a riot, killing many people, and were possessed with SCP-444-JP. The remaining researcher forced himself to process the memories seven times and wrote about mistakes about SCP-444-JP foundation have made in an article on SCP-444-JP, but eventually the researcher also was possessed with SCP-444-JP and died. Before he died, the researcher wrote in an article's blank, "Don't feed it, don't know it, close it.".
In response to this incident, the Foundation placed all those involved in SCP-444-JP in SCP-444-JP-1 and contained it a classified SCP even within the Foundation. However, SCP-444-JP had at that point become an "SCP that is anomalous in its knowing", so the scarlet bird of the hallucinatory world took advantage of this action of the Foundation and flew off to the real world. This SCP is currently in an unaccommodated state, but the Foundation is not aware of it.
