  • Mind Reader (anomalous): 3. Through means not quite known to the foundation, and explained vaguely as a "result of intensive research" by Dr. Parish. It would appear that Dr. Parish is able to decipher various memories, experiences, thoughts and emotions of any person, provided their brain is fully exposed. Dr. Parish states "I can see what's there, I just have to know what I'm looking at"

(Flaw): Victor retains any memories he reads, often believing himself to have experienced them. as there is evidence of slight atrophy of these memories over time, he is able to keep hold of his own personality by meticulously documenting his day to day life, but upon a successful reading, he takes on certain personality traits of whomever he has read until he is able to read through his extensive journal collections.

  • A rosary, brass and rosewood

  • Various journals detailing every worthwhile aspect of Dr. Parrish's day to day life (from specific tasks he was assigned to do, to encounters with friends and detailed write ups on how he felt about his co workers when interacting with them.) these journals

Personal History:

Due to his anomalous nature and the memory damage he has sustained as a result, very little is known about life before the foundation. upon extensive research, it has been determined that he was born to Martha and Reuben Parish, September 4th 1924 in rural Arkansas. He received his Doctorate in neuroscience at the age of 26 from Miskatonic University. wherein he inadvertently discovered the first instance of SCP-XXX. Dr. Parish wrote extensively on the subject. while his work was deemed outlandish and the result of exaggeration by his peers, the foundation took a vested interest. it is theorized he was involved in several experiments relating to SCP-[Data Expunged] resulting in his anomalous properties. when the foundation caught wind of this activity, he had already lost the majority of his memories up to that point, and was residing in XXXXXXX XXXXXXX asylum located in XXXXXXXX New York.
when questioned about his education he seems very forgetful, often mixing events and circumstances, and occasionally stating events which he had no involvement in as if he'd lived them himself. to quote directly:
"My doctorate? I can't recall actually getting it. I believe I wen't to Stanford, though maybe Harvard, but I can recall tenure at Miskatonic, but I also remember being broke in Detroit in my twenties"

Further research brought up a copy of his doctoral dissertation, as well as a copy of his degree. prompting him to say:

"oh yes, the degree, well I suppose it does say Miskatonic, I guess that's the one"

Dr. Parish has exhibited exceptional martial prowess. though examination of his particular fighting techniques show that his prowess is most likely self taught as a means of survival. a likely case given his upbringing as a street urchin, and years in a particularly seedy mental institution.
