A-290 in its containment chamber

Asset-ID: A-290

Form: Inanimate

Threat Level: Green

Hazards: Sensory

Active Protocols: A-290 is to be held in a standard low threat containment chamber at Site-002. No person under the age of 13 is allowed within a 10m radius of A-290.

Description: A-290 is an aged opaque dresser with 3 drawers. On the bottom of A-290 is a manufacturer's mark of unknown origin and language. A-290’s anomalous effects take hold when in the prolonged presence of human children aged approximately 3-13 (8 known victims). Adults do not seem to be affected by A-290’s Stage 1 effect, and will claim ignorance of its existence until victims of A-290 reach its Stage 2 effects. 

When Stage 1 effects takes place, individuals will claim to have an imaginary friend named “Pete” (hereby referred to as A-290-2) who hides in the dresser and plays company to the victim. When asked to describe A-290-2, the victim will frequently describe a loved one, although on one occasion 
a victim described [DATA EXPUNGED] [See Interview Log 290-A]. 

After prolonged exposure to A-290, Stage 2 will begin, in which the victim will start to experience nightmares that will continue to grow more horrific in nature, eventually evolving into night terrors until A-290 is removed from the victim at an unknown range. While removal of A-290 is necessary for the removal of its effects, the majority of the victims showed signs of withdrawal and voiced a longing for A-290-2. Brain scans of the victims after the events end reveal irreversible damage to the cerebellum, although the connection to A-290-2 is unknown.
