SCP-457, also known as The Burning Man, is a dangerous SCP contained by the SCP foundation. Its class is Euclid/Potential Keter.
SCP-457 appears to be invisible and undetectable often assuming a human-like form if given sufficient fuel to assume that size. SCP-457 possesses only the simplest of directives and shows no signs of being unusual compared to any other flame beyond a penchant for suddenly flickering to burn human hands, and the ability to "jump" to more flammable materials or other flames, which it then assimilates into its total form.
It is able to assume more complex shapes, and its method of intelligence is unknown, but almost always assumes a human-like form surrounded by and composed of flames. SCP-457 reaches an unknown threshold of size and fuel source.
While in this form, SCP-457 can use pops, crackles, or heated air to create noises and mimic human speech, even able to maintain conversations.
The danger of SCP-457 has to lead to set up relatively complex traps. It has its psychology may not be accurately determined in accordance with any human analogy
