Footage of RPC-230-02 and RPC-230-09 after Site-002's fourth containment breach.


Item #: RPC-230

Object Class: Alpha

Containment Protocols: All footage of RPC-230 that has spread in the mass media are to be given a cover of a falsified Fresno Nightcrawler footage. All instances of RPC-230 (-01 through -13) are to be kept in a standard containment chamber in the Terran-Alpha containment sector of Site-002.

The chamber holding instances of RPC-230 must be constructed into a swamp environment equipped with a 30m2 mud pool with 15 Mangrove trees and other plants. The sprinkler system must be activated on a weekly basis demonstrating a 2000mm average rainfall per year and keeping the temperature at 24 centigrade.

Only personnel with security clearance of Level 3 or higher and/or admitted personnel are allowed access to RPC-230's containment chamber. Entering personnel must be accompanied by two security details assigned to re-contain RPC-230 at all times.

Description: RPC-230 are bipedal humanoid entities with heights ranging from 90cm to 180cm. Instances possess extremely small upper bodies and large hindlimbs which make up the majority of their body mass. Despite extreme phenotypical differences, specimens are anatomically similar to humans with their white coloring due to tissues producing no melanin.

Their large hindlimbs seem to be better suited for rough, muddy terrain due to their webbed feet that have a dual function as pinching claws to grasp objects. This suggests swamp adaptations which are implemented into the containment chamber resembling their natural habitat, despite their place of recovery consisting of mostly jungle environments.

Most of the RPC-230 instances are docile, require no sustenance, shows no reproductive method and are generally harmless to humans. However, RPC-230-04 has reportedly shown aggressive motions to researching personnel by waving its right leg on the direction of approaching humans while letting out aggravated vocalizations. Nevertheless, there is no record of RPC-230-04 directly assaulting personnel. It is speculated that RPC-230-04 is the eldest of the group; trying to protect its species from danger.

Conversely, There have been reports of RPC-230-07 directly assaulting RPC-230-12 since its containment by attacking it by flailing its right leg at RPC-230-012's head while producing vocalizations similar to that of RPC-230-04. All other instances of RPC-230 seem to refuse to interact with RPC-230-12 since its containment. This suggests that instances of RPC-230 have a higher brain function and basic social structure.

Addendum: Recovery Log: The first instance of RPC-230 (believed to be -12) was spotted in the front yard of a house in Fresno County, California on ██/██/199█. The Authority intentionally left the footage unomitted, as it serves as an effective alibi as the Fresno Nightcrawlers myth.

MST Tango-4 "Ghostbusters" with several researchers was tasked to follow the first RPC-230 instance in order to study its behavior. The instance later returned to its brood located near the ██████ Mountain, 13 kilometers southwest from the initial sighting area. All instances of RPC-230 were subsequently detained.

It is speculated that most of the Fresno County was once a large swamp ecosystem before the human settlement altered the landscape and that RPC-230-12 was scouting for a new swamp environment.

Addendum: Incident Log 230-01: On ██/██/2018, all instances of RPC-230 directly assaulted RPC-230-12. Intervening personnel reported of distressed vocalizations coming from RPC-230-12 similar to that of crying humans.

RPC-230-12 is now transferred into its own solitary containment chamber.
