Addendum 3-A: Personnel History

Dr. MacKay is a native northern Californian, who studied and graduated from Humboldt State University, Arcata, CA, proceeding to graduate and post-graduate studies there. After peripheral contact with SCP-████;, Dr. MacKay was noted as a person of interest by the Foundation, and subsequently recruited. No disciplinary actions on record. Dr. MacKay is a licensed and board certified nurse practitioner, having received a second doctorate in nursing.

Dr. MacKay has expressed interest in speaking with SCP-992 on a variety of subject matters, hence his request for transfer to Site-23. Presently, he has been assigned to Medical as there is no current need for a full-time botanist on staff.

Addendum 3-B: Miscellaneous

Dr. MacKay has an arrest record in the state of California for cultivating marijuana. The state charges were dropped due to proper licensing for hemp production and medicinal marijuana. Federal charges were dropped due to [REDACTED].

Dr. MacKay is an ardent environmentalist, and will argue strongly to maintain pristine reserves for indigenous flora. He is a realist about humanity's needs, but he will attempt to persuade people to his point of view, not that he's any good at it. Dr. MacKay will also argue for the benefits of medicinal marijuana and other drugs, as well as the use of hemp products.

Dr. MacKay does not trust other people's cooking, and will attempt to take over on anything regarding food preparation. He knows proper techniques and makes delicious food, but has a tendency to serve entrees with high Scoville ratings. Rumors of his brownies recipe still persist, even though he is not one for recreational drug use.

Dr. MacKay has been given some space in the greenhouse for personal use, where he cultivates a variety of spices and plants for his own use. Dr. MacKay takes a certain amount of pride in his collection of Capsicum frutescens cultivars, especially his Bird's Eye Chilis. He's also been helping out with Greenhouse duties in his spare time.

MacKay was confronted with some horror inside of Tamlin House that he cannot describe, which turned his hair instantly and permanently white. No, he can't explain it, either. Another visit to Tamlin House left MacKay bald, but his hair grew back still white as snow.

Current projects: MacKay is working on a graft of SCP-038, to see if the results can be reproduced. He is also in charge of maintaining the Annex at Site 67.

Recently promoted to replace Dr. Mann as Personnel Director, after Mann went renegade.


  • Director Light has it out for MacKay.
  • MacKay has named every single earthworm in the vermicomposting bin, and can identify them at a glance.
  • Will inflict people with plants out of a sense of lonely desperation.
  • Has a very private and exclusive stash of marijuana plants growing somewhere, and his brownies are to die for.
