Addendum 3-A: Personnel History

Dr. Sawiczki was a successful and well-liked mathematical physicist before Foundation employ. Despite bad luck involving several cases of both plagiarism of his work as well as academic dishonesty on the part of students, Sawiczki shows a natural talent for navigating such disputes. The years in normal academia have made Sawiczki adept at navigating legal, bureaucratic, and academic politics. He came to Foundation attention when he applied for and obtained a Foundation "fishing grant". For four years, Sawiczki worked on low-security Foundation projects as part of the stipulations of this grant. At the end of the grant's duration, Dr. Sawiczki accepted a Foundation commission disguised as a offer for private sector employment.

At the Foundation, Sawiczki was no longer the most notable or prestigious member of his peers. As he became aware of more and more of the implications of what the Foundation did, Dr. Sawiczki came to have difficulties resolving his stature in his life before the Foundation with his present situation. He has become convinced that he lies in the "second tier" of researchers employed by the Foundation, assets deployed to projects of secondary urgency and importance.

Dr. Sawiczki has spent many years working with the Foundation, in his mind never obtaining the stature and respect he so desperately craves. Despite what he has convinced himself of, Foundation human resources considers him a notable long-term assest, able to generate useful knowledge and insight without being plagued by the burn-out experienced by many other researchers. His insecurities do threaten periods of productivity loss, but if appropriately managed, can be used as a useful motivator for Sawiczki.

Dr. Sawiczki's previous assignment was as research lead on SCP-915, taking for Dr. Foudray upon the death or loss of three of Foudray's research assistants. Dr. Sawiczki's research was notable in explaining an ambiguity that had been previously noted in SCP-915's egress point's apparent mass, as well as coming with a partial theory of the statistical mechanics and thermodynamics of SCP-915.

Sawiczki has been reassigned to attempt to map SCP-███ ("Tamlin House") both in terms of generating models to predict the specifics of the dynamic internal configuration, as well as predict the emergence of external egress points.

Addendum 3-B: Miscellaneous

Dr. Sawiczki is to be granted access to SCP-███, "the Dipsomantic Liquor", upon written and filed request.
