SCP-169 is surmised to be a marine arthropod of enormous size, known as the "Leviathan" by generations of sailors and oral history. Presumed at first to be a myth, SCP-169 was detected by Mobile Task Force Gamma-6 during an investigation of paranormal activity. During Ɣ-6's investigation it was discovered that the archipelago to have moved at least three (3) kilometers from its original location. Though initially believed to be due to unusually-quick continental drift, a reconnaissance mission revealed the archipelago to be the protrusions of rock-like plates covering an enormous organic mass. The Foundation was brought in immediately to begin threat management.
Foundation scientists estimate SCP-169's body length to be around 8000 km. The creature is thought to have existed since the pre-Cambrian era. No other specimens have been sighted. Almost nothing is known about SCP-169's habits, such as its reproductive capabilities (if any), food source, and nesting area (if any).
The archipelago known as the South Sandwich Islands have historically been uninhabited, though claimed by Britain in 1775. Upon handover to the Foundation, the island was evacuated on the pretense of rising sea levels. Though the archipelago has remained above sea level for several millennia, any change of depth by SCP-169 could result in the disappearance of the entire archipelago. SCP-169 moves slowly, less than one kilometer per week, but seems only to be adrift. Its method of propulsion is unknown. Regular seismic tremors seem to indicate "breathing" about every three months, causing minor shifts in the islands' terrain, suggesting that the creature is probably dormant.
