Report

Item is to be kept in a standard human cell with regular surveillance. Cell is to be isolated from its compound by no less than thirty-five (35) meters. Item requires no form of sustenance. Should its anomalous effects activate, the proper containment team is to assess the welfare of affected personnel after item's effects have subsided. Properties are activated via physical harm (refer to Appendix A).

Item is a bipedal life form, concealed by a costume stylized as a brown-furred creature with small horns and a reptilian tongue. Appearance beneath the costume is unknown; all attempts to remove it have activated its anomalous properties.

When its properties are activated, item will display visible distress and refuse conversation. Over a period roughly forty-seven (47) seconds, it will create a circular field of unidentified wave patterns thirty-four (34) meters in circumference, dubbed the Sleep Zone. Humans caught in the Sleep Zone will instantly enter REM sleep, but cannot be awoken by non-anomalous means; effects last between four (4) to six (6) hours. Surveillance feeds within the Sleep Zone will deteriorate to static, resuming functionality within the same window of time.

Item allegedly becomes amnesiac while emitting Sleep Zones. When not provoked, it is docile and cooperative, tending to fixate on objects and its surroundings for up to several hours. It will attempt to interact with human subjects, even when extensively ignored.

Projectiles that penetrate item's costume will be absorbed. Wounds will bleed sugar free maple syrup before healing in seconds, the exact length depending on the wound. While unable or refuses to vocalize, item understands written Spanish (see Appendix B).

Appendix A
Item was recovered in an abandoned warehouse during an HVI retrieval in Mexico City, Mexico. One agent forced item from its hiding spot and activated its anomalous properties. A second team was deployed and secured item with minimal incident.

Appendix B
Excerpt of interview by Dr. Kaller, transcripted. Item's responses translated from Spanish.

Dr. Kaller: Do you have a name?
Item: Not that I know.
Dr. Kaller: What was your life like, before we found you?
Item: Dark. Always dark, always in bed sleeping. Tubes in arms. They hurt. The masked people kept me there.
Dr. Kaller: Have you seen the people without the masks?
Item: No.
Dr. Kaller: And what kind of masks were these?
Item: Gas masks.
Dr. Kaller: Alright, what else did these people do to you?
Subject: Poured stuff into tubes. They kept me asleep. Vision would blur or stomach would ache. Once went numb everywhere. I was scared. Spent long time like this. Then they removed them and threw me into a box. Took me somewhere far away. Left me in warehouse. One said I was defective.
Dr. Kaller: Is this the same warehouse we found you in?
Subject: Yes.
Dr. Kaller: Have you always known your language? Did they teach you it?
Subject: Always known it.
Dr. Kaller: When did you become aware of your abilities?
Subject: Before you found me, thin woman found me in warehouse. Screamed and attacked me and it happened. When she woke up she cursed and ran.
Dr. Kaller: Did you ever leave the warehouse?
Subject: No. Noises outside scared me.
Dr. Kaller: Alright. That is enough for now. Thank you for cooperating.
Subject: Will you come back?
Dr. Kaller: Maybe.
Subject: Please do, was fun talking.
I had more to ask, but for now, we're focused on identifying and locating these people. They could be a known faction, I'll review our groups of interest. The use of the word defective may suggest there are similar items of value near Mexico City. I will question the item further; so far, it has been mostly cooperative. It's very childlike. It also appears to trust me. This, I could use later. -Dr. Kaller.
