|“||He had such an active imagination! I was able to create a vast and beautiful universe for him and it was obvious that he had wanted a life like that for so long. He conquered foul beasts and rescued princesses… He built kingdoms and even raised a family… but he never wanted to leave. He delved so far into his fantasy world that I soon realized he preferred his dream over the real world. I reminded him that this was all merely an illusion, but he wouldn’t listen to me. He stated that if he was ever forced to leave, he would immediately end his life. I tried to keep him happy for as long as I could…||„|
|~ SCP-1230-1 to Dr. F███████ over Professor B████'s suicide.|
SCP-1230-1 described himself as the "personification" of SCP-1230 itself. He appears in all user's dreams in the form of an elderly man with a long, white beard and wearing a green wizard's robe.
Powers and Abilities
He was responsible for creating the fantasy-scapes within the dreams of those who wish to use SCP-1230, allowing them to have their own adventures as a form of subconscious entertainment. These universes within the dreams were described as lasting anywhere from a mere 45 seconds to as long as 200 years, even though Foundation personnel describe the users as only being asleep for normal periods of time.
SCP-1230-1 was described as being very friendly, helpful, and creative towards those who use SCP-1230. He enjoyed creating such universes within anyone's dream as a way to keep them entertained and happy.
If a person grew too attached with their fantasy (such as favor it over real life), SCP-1230-1 started to show concern, and would warn them that these universes were merely illusions meant to make them happy and that eventually they would have to return to the real world.
In one such case, a staff member named Professor B████ grew too attached with the fantasy world within their dream that they committed suicide upon returning to the real world. This left SCP-1230-1 heartbroken, realizing that the world he created to bring joy to many individuals was responsible for the death of perhaps its most adventurous user.
During this time, SCP-1230's pages began to read "I'm so sorry, I never intended for this to happen. I just wanted to make people happy." instead of its usual "A Hero is Born." message. Another staff member named Dr. F███████ decided to visit him within one of his dreams, and learned that Professor B████ had conquered many evil beasts, rescued princesses and even began to raise an in-dream family that he ultimately decided that he preferred the dream life over real life, despite warnings from SCP-1230-1.
Shortly after the unfortunate death, Dr. F███████ slipped a note inside SCP-1230, and soon afterwards SCP-1230 returned to displayed its usual "A Hero is Born." message on its pages prior to the incident. When staff confronted Dr. F███████ about what the note said, he simply state that it was just some "friendly advice".
- According to SCP-1230's addendum, SCP-1230-1 actually requested in several Foundation personnel's dreams if they could allow SCP-1230 to be moved to a library within the facility it was contained within in an attempt to expand its source of knowledge to creation even more spectacular dream-scapes. Staff eventually approved of the request and updated SCP-1230's containment procedures as a result.
- It appears that the character alongside the book were based off The Neverending Story.
- In a now removed entry from "Project Isorropía", SCP-1230 was cross-tested with SCP-990 when Dr. Kalister became affected by both SCPs. This resulted in Kalister to remain in an eternal sleep, since 990 was trapped inside Kalister's fantasy world, but was still able to warn the doctor of upcoming threats. Kalister would then unconsciously speak of this warnings in his sleep which would be heard by the surrounding personnel.
