알제리 집회장의 회원들, 1913년.
맥락 불명.

종교이념 청산을 바라는 무신론자협회1, 일명 "사피르(SAPHIR)"는 주로 서유럽 전역에 자리 잡고 있지만 동유럽 국가들, 북아프리카, 그리고 미국 동부 해안에도 존재한다.

사피르가 관련된 알려진 활동들 중 가장 오래된 것은 1909년까지 거슬러 올라가지만, 해당 조직은 대규모로 확장한 1960년대까지 매우 모호한 상태를 유지했다. 정확한 이유는 불명이다.

사피르는 그들이 인류에게 영향을 미치는 여러 문제들의 근본적 원인이라 생각하는 모든 형태의 신앙, 종교 그리고 미신, 거기에 더해 그러한 신앙들의 근원이라 여기는 SCP 객체들과 투쟁하기를 옹호한다.

사피르가 주장하고 고수하는 합리성과 인본주의의 이상에도 불구하고 그들은 테러 목적으로 변칙적 수단을 사용하는 것을 주저하지 않으며 전통 및 오컬트 종교를 공격할 때, 주된 피해자들은 대부분 민간인들이다. 그들은 점술에 열광하는 민간인들, 혹은 재단을 포함한 경쟁 조직들을 공격 목표로 삼기 때문에 이러한 공격들은 미신들을 겨냥한 것일 수도 있다.

Inner workings:

SAPPHIRE does not follow a real leader or a central power but is rather divided in approximately fifty semi-independent Lodges. Each Lodge is free to act in its own way, but they can collaborate with each other if they are willing to. However, members of every Lodge are under the responsibility and the authority of a Lodge Leader. Those Lodge Leaders assemble every year during Summits taking place in an indeterminate place only known as "Stoa".

In spite of the egalitarian policy, SAPPHIRE claims to grant to its members, all of its Lodge Leaders and most eminent members seem to be part of an intellectual and/or wealthy elite, which is authoritative in the fields of civilian science. Several leading figures known by the general public are believed to be secretly part of that elite, including N███ ████████ █████, C███ █████ and R██████ ███████.

Financing:

SAPPHIRE seems to raise a part of its financial means from the subscriptions of its adherents, and the other part from the generosity of several rich patrons. Among those monetary supports, the Foundation actively monitors the Silverstein dynasty, based on the East coast of the United States, and the Faustil dynasty, in Switzerland, whose members are most often part of SAPPHIRE since at least the 1930s. It is also assumed that other organizations which are not part of SAPPHIRE but have an interest in the eradication of the anomalous and/or the religion can offer them financial assistance. However, these suspicions remain unconfirmed.

Activities:

Activities of SAPPHIRE focus on intelligence gathering, terrorism, research, active proselytism for the atheist cause, and the destruction of anomalous objects and phenomena. To this end, the organization is divided into several units:

  • Repressive Use of Bias and Imaginary Entities Suppression: RUBIES is the field unit of SAPPHIRE, more or less the equivalent of the MTFs. Their objectives, as the name suggests, is to recover discovered SCP objects, to use them against religions (for attacks for instance) and to destroy them, or to counter or limit their effects when they prove to be indestructible.

As SAPPHIRE does not have military forces at their disposal like the Foundation, and as most of its members are civilians, each RUBIES team is improvised depending on the situation by voluntary members having knowledge, practice, or precise means suitable to their needs. Consequently, a RUBIES can consist of one single individual or over one hundred depending on the operation. Though they are often charged with amateurism, RUBIES operations have a sixty percent success rate.

  • Extortion Maneuvers, Espionage and Reconnaissance inside Agencies, Leagues and Dogma: EMERALDs refer to undercover agents among other organisms linked to the anomalous world. They are especially pernicious and are most likely the biggest strategic advantage of SAPPHIRE, present inside "Agencies" such as the SCP Foundation, "Leagues" such as the Global Occult Coalition and "Dogmas" such as the Horizon Initiative.

EMERALDs are particularly numerous, discreet, and efficient. As most of SAPPHIRE members are scientists, they have no problem infiltrating the Foundation, which often selects and recruits them without knowing. It is also assumed that several researchers already working for the Foundation and suffering from the Filbuson syndrome end up secretly joining SAPPHIRE. ██ EMERALDs have already been discovered within the Foundation since the 70s, and around ███, personnel has been put under surveillance by the Internal Security Department.

  • Zetetic Investigation, Rational Cognition and Oddities Negation: ZIRCON is a unit comprised of debunkers, who are sent first to the scene of anomalous phenomena in order to write a precise report about "why it's not possible". As skeptics and rhetoric experts, they also mainly serve to manage both internal and external communication of the Society, as well as in the "scientific" research (although clearly oriented and negationist) on SCP objects.

Research on anomalous objects, pursued independently by SAPPHIRE researchers, seems to be limited essentially to the practical abilities and limits of SCP objects, in order to know how to destroy, inhibit, and/or use them. SAPPHIRE has no personal interest to know more about them, and the recovery of several technical documents from their research mentioning "morphic fields" and "telluric resonance" (largely outdated terms in the field of paraphysics) prove that they are largely behind in the scientific sector.
