You possess an augmented or inhuman body.
Used by Stacy Bass, Created by geniebottle.
(Your specific augmentation must be physically visible in some way, but it does not need to make you appear outwardly monstrous or socially unacceptable. )

SCP-8461 appears to be a completely mechanical construction designed to replicate the human form, only without any skin.

And it really doesn't like to be told it's a robot.

SCP-8461 is a machine designed to almost perfectly replicate the human form in appearance. However, one problem was that the craftsman for the object, identified as Kari Bass was found dead of a heart attack before she could finish.

As such, 8461 appears as a human stripped of all skin, though grey and metallic in colour.
