SCP Apollyon and Thaumiel Classes Explained

SCP Apollyon and Thaumiel Classes Explained

We are all familiar by now with the main three SCP classifications. These are: Safe, Euclid and Keter and they show how easy it is to contain a certain SCP/ However, during your many ventures on the Site, you may have encountered other classifications. Therefore, I am here to shed some light onto those too. I know that there isn’t more info on this. Therefore, we also have SCP Apollyon and SCP Thaumiel.

SCP Apollyon refers to those that you can only contain for so long. At some point they will inevitably escape and cause some end-of-the-world scenario. Apollyon could also mean that it is impossible to contain, and extremely powerful. We all know of SCP-2317.

That is an Apollyon SCP, which the Foundation can only keep contained for a little while. At some point it will escape and no one can do anything in regard to this. The only containment procedures they have are just a façade.

Thaumiel-class objects are highly classified at the Foundation. They are also some extremely rare anomalies. The Foundation uses them to either contain or to counteract the effects of other highly dangerous SCPS. Mostly Keter ones. The mere existence of Thaumiel objects is classified at the highest levels of the Foundation. Only a few members of the personnel know of their locations, functions and uses.

Maksur is another very obscure classification. I think that the only SCP that has it is SCP-001. It’s the one holding the name of The Broken God. In Arabic, ‘maksur’ means ‘broken’, and it seems to fit the description. This means that the original SCP got split into many other anomalous pieces. They must remain separate lest the full anomaly will be recreated.

For this reason, each piece will get its own name and no one will know of its connection to SCP-001. The Maksur classification was codified in 1981 by the Foundation’s Containment Committee. Until then, SCP-001 had the ‘Neutralized’ classification but the Foundation deemed that it was improper.
