Threat Level: Green
Containment: Subject S-263 is to be kept in a standard containment cell. For comfort, a standard sized kennel (2m x 1m) and an old bedspread is sufficient. Under no circumstances must Subject S-263 be exposed to any quantity of water other than the nutrition tube provided.
Description: Subject S-263 is believed to be a member of the canine genus. Its outward appearance is typical to that of the Beagle breed. It has glossy eyes, typically patterned coat, and has no observable disfigurement or deformity. DNA testing conducted by Dr S. Pattenbourg has proven that Subject S-263 is an adult male.

Other than these facts, there is one factor that has marked Subject S-263 for testing. That is its supernatural ability to bend light.
Direct light sources are refracted around the body, and around the other side. This produces an effect of complete invisibility, rendering the subject completely transparent. Light on all spectrums has ultimately proven ineffective against this ability. Shining opposing light sources from either side of Subject S-263 can cause extreme luminosity, although the subject is still not directly visible with the naked eye.
Initial containment of the subject proved to be a daunting task. No agent was able to detect Subject S-263 through optical means. Nightvision and infrared were rendered ineffective. Agents reported feeling a knee level breeze as though a tail was being wagged in the vicinity, and could hear a faint panting in the room, but could observe nothing. Agent Norton suffered a nervous breakdown, although this was concluded to be through situational stress and not an effect of exposure to Subject S-263 itself. The subject was contained after Agent Howe threw a packet of Bonios into a paddling pool filled with paint, where the subject could be observed and detained.
Subject S-263 has since been painted to look exactly like a Beagle. This is to reduce occupational stress upon our researchers and for practical means such as location and testing of the subject. Visually, the subject now appears to be an ordinary specimen for its species, thanks to these measures.

10/10/2009 – Dr. Holloway has been observed testing the intelligence level of Subject S-263. Although an exact IQ has yet to be established, Dr. Holloway spent 35 minutes throwing a ball for the subject, and having it returned to him. No unusual behaviour displayed.
12/10/2009 – Dr. Holloway has ordered an increase in nutrition to increase the stamina of Subject S-263. I’m unsure as to how this will help us identify the invisibility gene in the subject, but have complied with this request. See Appendix 39 for supplement breakdown.
14/10/2009 – I am starting to fear for Dr. Holloway’s sanity. He’s been observed rubbing the stomach and abdomen of Subject S-263 profusely, and has taken to using the phrase “who’s a good boy?” in casual conversation. I have posted a recommendation of Dr. Holloway’s removal from the project to a Level 4 Project Leader, but have so far not heard anything further on the matter. I am writing a research paper on a hypothesised psychic connection between Dr. Holloway and Subject S-263 which is causing extreme fondness in them both.
15/10/2009 – Site 12 was put on lockdown today after Dr. Holloway attempted to take Subject S-263 for “walkies”. Security personnel have contained the breach. Dr. Holloway has been reprimanded and moved onto another project (rumoured to be the vastly more dangerous Subject S-101). I will be taking over as the Head Researcher on this project.
19/10/2009 – Dawwwww, he’s so cute! Good boy! Very good boy!
