Reality Benders are a lethal and consistent problem for both the Foundation and Humanity as a whole. They are literally capable of altering the fabric of reality as we know it by sheer force of will and desire. They could turn a person inside out or melt an entire skyscraper at a moment's will.
Most Reality Benders fall into the trap of using their own powers for personal glory, sex, drugs, money etc. They overindulge themselves and go down the usual emo, Mary sue route and then have to be eliminated. 'Power corrupts' and all that. But in extremely rare cases (less than 1% of Reality Benders) some of them either prove to be of use or are able to lock their own powers away from fear of causing harm to others. Aside from a few extremely rare cases they are usually eliminated on sight. As of now there are only [Redacted
] RBs who are within either the foundation's employment or peacefully sitting in a cell behaving themselves. The rest are either dead, in hiding, or willed themselves out of the universe.
The low level Bender code named 'Runt'
is one of the few sane Reality Benders. She was captured on [Redacted
] in [Redacted
] Kentucky after she was caught injuring a number of GOC personnel.
(She made a point to not lethally injure any of them, only making their weapons misfire or the guns become too hot to hold and surrendered when she saw the foundation wasn't out to kill her, yet.) Runt had been in the middle of fighting two other Reality Benders, who had attempted to recruit her into their group as they planned to combine their powers with as many Benders as possible and overwhelm the entire world.
Runt opposed them and turned down their offer, and was soon engaged the other RBs as they attempted to kill her for knowing too much and being a possible threat to their plans. In the ensuing fighting (Which ended up in the water tower of [Redacted
] being knocked down and drawing the attention of the GOC) Runt managed to kill one by conjuring a cinder block in her hands when she had the target on the ground and proceeded to beat the subject to death. The other RB was killed when GOC personnel arrived and was overwhelmed by both the overwhelming firepower of the operatives and from Runt's own attacks.
Despite aiding the GOC in killing the other RB, they soon turned on her and Runt barely held them off until Foundation personnel arrived. She surrendered happily to them and gave no resistance after initial capture. Afterward she was placed under foundation containment, classed Euclid due to her Reality Bending powers. Usually one such as her would be classed as Keter or higher, but given her underdeveloped powers and lack of hostility towards the Foundation or its personnel, the subject is given a lower classification. To date the subject has only caused minor incidents due to boredom, such as summoning food, or entertainment, but has never attempted to either break containment, or harm/impose her will upon foundation personnel.
Runt's real name is Caroline Becker, she has been in a Foundation containment cell at site [Redacted
] for almost 3 years now. There are alot of bad things out there, most of them contained by the SCP. But many of them roam free and hurt people, sometimes they do it just to feed, sometimes for the sake of causing pain. Caroline doesn't want to be like those monsters. Shed rather help people instead of being one of the monsters that the GOC and SCP and such hunt down. Its a shame some of them wont listen. Either way, Caroline has remained in her cell with little incident and has occasionally been allowed to a break room that allows one to see the open air/sun for an hour a month if the staff feels she has earned it.
At the moment she is one of the better behaved Reality bender's encountered and has led some ponder on her possible usefulness to the foundation, though it mostly remained in the realm of speculation and thought experiments, until things at the foundation took a turn for the worse.
After the incident involving Dr. alto Clef, the foundation has found itself in a difficult position. Many personnel were lost after [Redacted
] , and a useful operative was left paralyzed from the neck down. A dangerous vacuum has been left that the Foundation's enemies could use against it, not to mention the need to continue acquiring SCPs before they prove to be too much of a threat to the public. One of the more forward thinking doctors in the higher levels of the Foundation's management puts forth a proposition. They have a Reality Bender on hand already, who has shown willingness to work with the SCP, and has had little to no incident in her entire stay.
"It takes a wolf to catch a wolf, even if its just a runt
."-Dr. Ouda at foundation security meeting.
After approval by the O-5s, Caroline's case is approved and after being assigned a handler, they decide to put the Reality Bender girl to the test.
Maybe Caroline starts to develop a Highlander complex. With every other Reality Bender she deals with, her powers become stronger and becoming eager to fight more of them or other types of entities. Perhaps she even thinks that she should be the only R.B. in the world.
'There can be...only me
I haven't done much thinking about her Handler because I want it to be something you bring to the table and make your own.
Another possibility is that the foundation needs a heavy hitter when SCP 2399
begins growing hostile and no conventional weapon can truly stop it. So they decide to go with an anomalous weapon.
