SCP-073 is a male, cyborg-like entity whose arms, legs, spine, and shoulders are replaced entirely with an unknown metal. On its forehead is a mysterious symbol of Sumerian origin; when asked about the symbol, SCP-073 will become hestiate and refuse to answer. Besides these, SCP-073 behaves like a normal human-being, living in a cell complete with everyday furnishings and eating and drinking regularly, thought it requires a carnivorous diet.
When SCP-073 is attacked, any damge it substains recoils back on its attacker whilst leaving SCP-073 unharmed, likely a property obtained from its metal composition. As a result, tests to retrieve tissue samples prove fruitless.
Any soil-based life (for example plants) within a 20 meter radius of SCP-073 gradually begins to die. If it standson grass, it starts to become barren, leaving nothing but empty dirt and rock. Meanwhile if SCP-073 touches materials derived from plants (e.g. paper, wood, etc.), it begins to rot or disintegrate.
SCP-073 is described as being polite and helpful amongst SIte 17 personel, although his tone of speech sounds opposite, often cold and mechanical. Unlike most SCPs, SCP-073 is allowed to freely roam inside Site 17, and as a result, often helps out many Foundation staff.
According to one of the Foundation's addendums on it, SCP-073 claims to have knowledge on the villainous SCP-076-2, possibly information on how to stop it.
- SCP-073 is located within Site 17, a facility within the Foundation that contains several of the more benevolent human and humanoid SCPs, including SCP-105.
