Instances of RPC-199


Item #: RPC-199

Object Class: Beta Gamma

Containment Protocols: Due to the anomalous properties of RPC-199, current containment is impossible. As such, Site-65 is to monitor any and all RPC-199 activities in the region. Approximately 300 kilograms of meat must be dispensed at the designated area near Site-65 every week in order to monitor all RPC-199 instances. All known instances of RPC-199 must be tagged with GPS tracking devices, as they are able to function when RPC-199 manifests.

The northernmost towns of Canada, Greenland, and Russia are to undergo heavy monitoring for any instance of RPC-199. Should an instance or instances of RPC-199 attack one of these towns, MST November-12 ("Arctic Fox") is to be deployed and sedate the instance. Any media coverage or witnesses are to be amnesticized and suppressed to avoid any information breach of RPC-199 existence.

Description: RPC-199 is an anomalous subspecies of polar bears (Ursus maritimus). At the time of writing, there are 27 members of the RPC-199 species, each designated RPC-199-1 through -27. Although RPC-199 instances behave like their non-anomalous counterparts, they are biologically different. The bears are comprised of an unknown biological material, which possibly grants them their anomalous abilities. RPC-199 Instances demonstrate a heightened sense of smell and sight. The bears are normally found within the Arctic Circle and around northern Canada, Greenland, and Russia.

All RPC-199 instances demonstrate the ability to seemingly "fade out" of existence and reappear at will. Once a bear begins dematerialization, they are effectively intangible. It is currently unknown where RPC-199 instances manifest to when they dematerialize out of existence, as GPS tracking devices and video cameras usually fall off the bear once they dematerialize. However, anything inside RPC-199, such as food or air, travels with the bear. Unfortunately, GPS tracking devices swallowed by a bear are unable to locate where the bears manifest to. RPC-199 instances typically manifest in a different location from where they initially dematerialized, only manifesting when a food source or prey item is nearby.

The existence of RPC-199 was discovered on 19██/█/██, when Site-65 detected two instances of RPC-199, at the time thought to be normal polar bears, and recorded the bears dematerializing after detection. Agents were dispatched to locate these bears, and nine more instances of RPC-199 in the region. It is theorized that RPC-199 is responsible for variety of disappearances in Canada, Greenland, and Russia.

Addendum 199-A: On 20██/█/██, three instances of RPC-199 manifested inside the house of the █████████ Family in Kuujjuarapik, QC. All four members of the household were killed and consumed by the RPC-199 instances. Roughly two weeks later, the three bears manifested in the house of Felix ████, who was killed and consumed by the RPC-199 instances. November-12 ("Arctic Fox") was stationed in Kuujjuarapik at the time to monitor the town after Incident 199-C, and managed to neutralize two instances of RPC-199. The third bear has yet to attack a household since the incident.

Addendum 199-B: On 20██/██/██, an instance of RPC-199 manifested inside the École St. Joseph School in Yellowknife, NT, killing roughly ██ members of student and staff before dematerializing. The bear has not attacked Yellowknife since then. Echo-7 ("The Blind Eye") was deployed to administer amnestics and suppress any news coverage of the incident. Updated containment protocols have been approved following this incident.
