We are a movement, unified by a common belief: that humanity and all the other peoples of the known worlds do not deserve to be kept in darkness and ignorance.
~ The Serpent's Hand slogan.

The Serpent's Hand is a small but formidable militant leaderless resistance organization opposed to the SCP Foundation and the Global Occult Coalition, whom it wages guerrilla warfare against.

It has been responsible for the freeing of several SCPs in the past, as well as the loss of several GOC cells. It is considered a "para-environmental terrorist organization" by the GOC. GOC agents have standing shoot-on-sight orders for all Hand agents.



The Serpent's Hand's origin is unknown however it might have something to do with Nahash escaping to the Wanderer's Library.

Goals and Motives

Whereas many organizations involved in the supernatural and paranormal in the Foundation universe aim to suppress public knowledge of anomalous (supernatural) events and objects in order to preserve a sense of normalcy, the Hand seek to spread awareness of the anomalous to the public and integrate the anomalous into society. This drives them to extreme opposition to the GOC, who see the anomalous as in and of itself anathema to the human race and regularly destroy anomalous objects, often using anomalous technology to do so themselves. They are also opposed to the Foundation due to its containment of anomalies, including imprisonment of sentient anomalies, although they do not despise them as much as they do the GOC.

Many members of the Hand are anomalous themselves or are heavily connected with anomalous humans or humanoids (such as anomalous friends or family).


As a leaderless resistance organization, the Hand does not have any organizational structure; the only true requirement for joining the Hand is to decide that one is a member and carry out acts in the name of the Hand. This is only partially understood by the Foundation and the GOC. However, most members are known to utilize portals to an extra-dimensional library known as the Wanderer's Library, the nexus of all realities.

One prominent member in the Hand, often (mistakenly) theorized to be its leader, is an enigmatic female figure known as L.S. It is possible that L.S. is Alison Chao (also known as the Black Queen), the daughter of Dr. Gears, as it may be an acronym for "Little Sister".

Relationships with Other GOI's

The Serpent's Hand refers to the SCP Foundation as the "jailors", for locking up the paranormal, and believes that keeping the it secret from the public is wrong. Despite this, the two groups have secretly worked together against more dangerous anomalies and open hostilities are rare.

The Global Occult Coalition on the other hand is viewed with extremely open hostility by the Hand, due them destroying anomalies and are often called "book-burners" because of this. The Hand is only known to use unprovoked violence against the GOC.

The Hand just got recently friendly relationships with the Church of the Broken God, the Chaos Insurgency and the Office For The Reclamation of Islamic Artifacts in November 2019. However, the relationship between the Hand and the Insurgency soon fell apart when the Chaos Insurgents began taking advantage of the library and threatening the Serpent's Hand's members, causing the Hand to refer to them as the "Madmen".

According to Dipesh Spivak, the Children of the Scarlet King are enemies of the Hand.

Apparently the Oneiroi and the Wandsmen have ties with the Hand and appear to be on good terms.
