|~ The Serpent's Hand.|
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 and their 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".
The Serpent's Hand also overlook the information contained in the Wanderer's Library regarding several anomalies, people and groups which exist in the multiverse. While discussing these information members will leave funny comments which shows that the Serpent's Hand is comprised of young people who from time to time don't take things much seriously.

Relationships with Other GOIs
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, since they regard them as the Hand's archenemy.
The Hand appears to have friendly relationships with the Manna Charitable Foundation and some non-violent groups of the Church of the Broken God, and the Fifth Church, while the Hand appear to have a complicated relationship with the Office For The Reclamation Of Islamic Artifacts, the Horizon Initiative and Marshall, Carter and Dark Ltd. as they sometimes help each other out while other times they have hostile confrontations.
The Children of the Scarlet King and the Chaos Insurgency, the latter being referred to as the "madmen", are enemies of the Hand, despite sharing the same goal of breaking the Veil and utilizing anomalies.
Apparently the Oneiroi, Dr. Wondertainment and the Wandsmen have ties with the Hand and appear to be on good terms.
Some members of the Serpent's are also members of the group known as Are We Cool Yet?, but appear to be some of more pacifist in compared to most AWCY? members.
Jude Kryiot of the Gamers Against Weed is also a member of the Serpent's Hand.
The Serpent's Hand appear to view Sarkicism as a major threat to the world, and think that this dangerous religion should be stopped. The Hand also have similar view to SAPPHIRE due to their hostile and unreasonable nature towards the anomalous and religion, which prompted the Hand to refer to them as the "Deniers".
The Serpent's Hand is aware of the existence of the Three Moons Initiative and some members seem to view them as some lunatics, but despite this one member invoked the name of the Initiative's god, Jalakåra.
SCPs Associated with the Serpent's Hand
- In the universe of SCP-5000, in which the SCP Foundation began exterminating the entire human race, the Serpent's Hand began helping the GOC and CotBG in preserving humanity and fighting against the Foundation. However, the Foundation was able to get rid of the Hand by trapping them inside of the Wanderer's Library after destroying the Ways.
- In the tale "Snippets of an Unveiled World" which took place in the "Broken Masquerade" canon, when PETA tried to protest the containment of the animals held by the Foundation on the paranatural microblogging platform Void, the Serpent's Hand official account responded to their post by insulting them, which became way more popular than PETA's post. In "#StormSite19", when someone suggested as a joke to raid Site-19, in a similar manner to Storm Area 51 event, the Serpent's Hand official account was the first one be onboard to that idea, before it was abandoned after things became somewhat serious.
- The SCP Foundation created the Mobile Task Force Sigma-3 also known as "Bibliographers", a special MTF made only for disrupting and researching the Hand and the Library's activities. As noted in the tale "The Conspiracy Of Sigma 3", sigma meant "hissing" in Hellenic, and in Mycenaean alphabet Sigma is the 18th letter, with the number 18 being 6 tripled and forming the number of the Devil, or the Serpent as depicted in the Abrahamic religions.
- Prior to joining the Foundation Katherine Sinclair briefly joined a violent group of the Serpent's Hand while in her teenage years, but after seeing that the group conducted sacrifices she left and eventually joined the Foundation.
- Some members of the Serpent's Hand created a cheap web series titled "Habil and Qabil", a comedic live action internet series which revolved around fictional depictions of SCP-073 and SCP-076-2 and their friends in Site-17.
- In the tale "Aftermath", after the Veil broke following the reconstruction of Mekhane and the attack of SCP-610, both the Chaos Insurgency and the Serpent's Hand went public and began causing chaos in Mexico, with the Hand using the tension that was happening to keep the riots going which lead to a civil war erupting in 2021.
