SCP-001 (Tufto's Proposal) (2024)

An old story, forgotten by many.

One shard of the God of flesh,

two thousand automata serving MEKHANE,

the guardians who stave off the third Hytoth,

they who were gathered by the four gospels,

the eyes who watch the stars die in fives,

and the six-fingered serpentine hand,

all gathered to seal the king in red robes,away from his brides, to rot alone, forever. His followers disbanded, his children are gone, and yet he laughed, as his seals broke over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over again. Sure of his return, of his triumph, he proclaimed: "Seven brides, seven spears, seven gates for the Scarlet King!"But the lady of black thorns was clever,

and sealed the king in his own tale,

the marks of his liberation becoming those of his demise, and so, too late, he realized

that the number seven was never his.



SCP-001, better known as The Scarlet King, or Khahrahk (his real name), was born with the planting of the Tree of Knowledge, called Khahrahk at the time. He was the smallest of his siblings, but the only one aware, and it brought him great pain. He decided that existence itself is painful and that he'd have no part in it, as well as destroying existence itself. He started by consuming his siblings and growing stronger on their essence.

He vowed to destroy the Tree, the Creator and Creation, and consumed or subjugated all the other Low Elder Gods, naming himself "King of the Darkness Below". He declared war on creation itself, one which will not end until the very end of everything. He took Sanna, one of the gods he subjugated, forcibly as his wife and sired seven daughters on her. Sanna died after birthing them, and the King took his seven daughters as his new brides, sealing them so they would not die as their mother had. From his seven bride-daughters he had seven children called Leviathans.

Other Low Elder Gods and older beings agreed to follow him as well, such as Jeser, Goran, Moloch and the Hanged King. It is also speculated that he is the nephew of Yaldabaoth.

Weaknesses: The King doesn’t perceive Reality the same way humans do, perceiving negative feelings and ideias on their platonic form, such as the collective consciousness and belief of humanity on fearing him and the Leviathans, as well any negative ideia, can satisfy his bloodlust, allowing his “containment”, should the seals placed on him be removed, he will become killable

Notable Attacks/Techniques: None notable

Feats: When he first came into being, was already capable of consuming Low Elder Gods like him, effortlessly subjugated Jeser, Goran, Moloch and the Hanged King and devoured the Gods that refused to join his crusade to destroy all of creation, increasing his power by that, to the point where he became, the second strongest Low Elder God, only behind the Brothers Death. Fought the Brothers Death, who are the literal embodiment of death and the ones who created The Tree of Knowledge, from which all creation stems, their battle reduced all of creation to ashes, including the Library, which contains all information and concepts. Immeasurably superior to his entire army combined, who are capable of damaging the roots of the Tree of Knowledge. Capable of causing severe damage to the Tree of Knowledge, almost destroying it, and bringing an end to everything there is.
