New Object Classification System

The New Object Classification System, NOCS, focuses on 3 main aspects of the UNA, as well as 3 other secondary aspects. These are known as

  • OCR characteristics (Object, Containment, Risk)
  • DSE characteristics (Danger, Secrecy, Esoterism)

respectively.

Additionally, each UNA is also classified based on its Object Type, which aids in determining the object's esoterism level1, as well as its object description code2.

OCR Characteristics

OCR stands for Object, Containment and Risk classes.

Object Classes

Object Classes show the danger possessed by a UNA. There are seven main Object Classes, as well as two more Exception Object Classes. Below are the Object Classes UNAs can be assigned to.

Null

Null UNAs are harmless, yet anomalous in some way or another. For instance, a table that behaves like a puppy and is never aggressive to anyone it meets is a null UNA. Usually stored in code-locked boxes if inanimate. Otherwise they will be kept in captivity like a UNAS-F-13.

Generic

Despite the mundane-sounding name, Generic UNAs actually pose a significant danger to the UNAS-F and humanity. This is because UNAs are only classified Generic due to the object

  • possessing an unknown type of danger (not yet known due to complications in the determination of effects)
  • possessing more than one type of danger (for example, and object that can both shapeshift and cause others it touches to shapeshift would be classified as Generic)
  • pending object classification

This means that objects that are Generic might actually pose an extreme level of danger to humanity and reality, and thus all objects classified as such are to be placed under Class IV containment4.

Morphic

Morphic UNAs are UNAs whose effects are caused by changing the state of the UNA itself. For instance, a UNA that can shapeshift into any object, gaining said object's abilities, such as intelligence, speech, and strength. While some of these UNAs do not appear to have much of a negative effect on humans and reality in general, many can greatly harm it's victims, even f they do not mean to. Due to the nature of these objects, most Morphic UNAs are animate, and must hence be placed under Class III and above containment, depending on the level of danger the UNA possesses.

Morphic UNAs include: UNA-001: Celestial Shapeshifter, UNA-013: The Absolute Horror

Psychic

Psychic UNAs are UNAs whose effects are caused by changing the state of its victim. For example, a UNA that gives infinite knowledge to a person that holds it, and a UNA that would cause a person to anomalously receive lacerations would both be Psychic UNAs. Psychic UNAs could both be good or bad, although they must be contained similarly regardless of their intentions. Some Psychic UNAs could also be inanimate, hence Psychic UNAs can be contained at any level of strictness. In general, though, Psychic UNAs are usually more harmful that they are not.

Psychic UNAs include: UNA-006: Liquid Lover, UNA-014: The Keys to Everything

Dimensional

Dimensional UNAs are UNAs whose effects are caused by changing the state of its surroundings. For example, a UNA that causes the ground to move and attack like snakes, and a UNA where all objects within a 5m radius move in reverse, are both Dimensional UNAs. Dimensional UNAs are usually inanimate object, some of which can even be used like tools. Hence Dimensional UNAs will receive Class I or Class II containment.

Dimensional UNAs include: UNA-026: Gravitational Orienter, UNA-030: Interdimensional Being

Apocalyptic

Apocalyptic UNAs are what their name suggests — apocalyptic. This may be due to any reason, from being extremely disruptive to society, to having the potential of destroying the world. An example of an Apocalyptic UNA would be a being that could cause the Earth's existence to cease just by thinking about it, or an object that constantly recreates the effects of 9/11 on different buildings around the world. While Apocalyptic UNAs could be both animate and inanimate, all of them are to be contained under Class V containment.

Apocalyptic UNAs include: UNA-023: The Wasteland, UNA-036: Disease Y

Assistant

Assistant UNAs are UNAs that aid in the containment of other UNAs. For example, a UNA that accurately predicts End-of-the-World scenarios would be considered an Assistant UNA. UNAs like this are extremely rare, and hence very precious to the UNAS-F. As such, Assistant UNAs are only used to contain UNAs possessing extreme danger, or Apocalyptic UNAs. The location of these UNAs are also kept top secret. This information is only accessible by the UNAS-F-7, and no one else.

Assistant UNAs include: UNA-002: Dimension Disk, █████████████

Exception Classes

Objects may not be suitable to be classified under and of these seven classes. Hence they are given an exception class, most commonly Explained and Neutralized

Explained UNAs are UNAs once considered anomalous, however their seemingly abnormal properties have been explained by scientific reasoning.

Neutralized UNAs are UNAs whose anomalous properties have ceased to exist, through intentional or accidental destruction of the UNA or it's properties.

Containment Classes

A UNA's containment class shows the ease at which the object is contained. The object's Containment Class and Object Class are independent of each other, and even Null objects may be classified as extremely hard to contain, while Apocalyptic UNAs could be classified as trivial in terms of containment.

Provisional

Provisional UNAs are UNAs that are contain on-site. This could be due to several reasons, including that it is too tedious or large to move around, or that moving such an object would pose a great danger to everyone near it. An example of a Provisional UNA would be a building containing anomalous, snake-like entities. Sites containing this class of UNAs are known as Provisional Sites, and the UNAS-F alone is in possession of at least 150 of them. Level of containment of Provisional UNAs may vary.

Clausa

Clausa UNAs are UNAs that can be easily locked and contained by the UNAS-F. They are usually inanimate, or have very mild or genuine intentions. An example of a Clausa UNA would be a pack of regenerative biscuits, or a human with the ability to change her eye and skin color at will. These UNAs are either locked in small boxes and stored in labelled compartments, or placed in monitoring cells. Usually these UNAs will receive Class I or II containment.

Mordari

Mordari UNAs are UNAs that the UNAS-F find harder to contain. They could be either animate or inanimate, and have varying intentions, but in general are more inclined to escape containment than Clausa UNAs. Examples of Mordari UNAs include a chest that fills with insects or venomous creatures if it has not been moved for 15 minutes, or a man with the ability to produce fire from his orifices. Mordari UNAs usually receive a more special containment protocol than their Clausa counterparts, and are contained under Class II or III containment.

Periculo

Periculo UNAs are UNAs that the UNAS-F find significantly harder to contain. They are usually animate, and have extremely malicious intent. Given any chance they will try to leave containment, and the budget used, as well as damaged received, when containing Periculo UNAs are often massive. The containment of Periculo UNAs are prioritized over the containment of Clausa or Mordari UNAs, are are usually given Class IV or V containment. An example of a Periculo UNA would be ████████████ ████ ██████.

Primus

Primus UNAs are UNAs that are prominent in many, if not all parts of the Earth. Essentially, they are Periculo UNAs that have not been contained by the UNAS-F yet. While not a lot of UNAs are considered Primus, many that are usually receive a very high level Object and Risk Class. An example of a Primus UNA would be a plant that spontaneously multiplies when within 50m of another living creature. Primus UNAs usually receive Class V containment.

Exception Classes

UNAs that have more specific containment requirements receive Exception Containment Classes. While many such classes exist, the following are the most common.

Apstrum UNAs are UNAs that have to be contained outside of the Earth's atmosphere.

Rationa UNAs are UNAs possessing very high levels of danger. These UNAs exist outside of the dimension Earth resides in, and is technically containing humanity instead.

Digitas UNAs are UNAs contained online. These UNAs are often immaterial.

Risk Classes

Risk Classes describe how disruptive the effects of a UNA is. The higher the Risk Class, the more disruptive to humanity.

Infreque

Infreque UNAs are UNAs whose effects are extremely hard to detect, completely non-existent, or occur to a single person at the time. An example of an Infreque UNA would be an animal that has the ability to cook and serve customers when receiving a specific command. Infreque UNAs are usually simple to contain, however UNAs that are both Infreque and Periculo at the same time exist. UNA-122 is an example of such a UNA.

Incertum

Incertum UNAs are UNAs whose effects greatly affect a single community, or in worst cases, a full city. In addition, these UNAs are usually harder to contain. For instance, a UNA that causes extended periods of thunderstorms in a city is considered Incertum.

Verisa

Verisa UNAs are UNAs whose effects are worldwide, and sometimes may even affect our entire galaxy or universe. Many Apocalyptic UNAs are Verisa (This is self-explanatory as Apocalyptic UNAs have highly drastic effects. That is what causes them to be classified as Apolcalyptic in the first place.) An example of a Verisa UNA would be one that causes the entirety of the Milky Way to be spontaneously filled with liquid.

DSE Characteristics

DSE stands for Danger, Secrecy and Esoterism levels, all of which are measured on a scale of 0 to 10.

Danger Level

Refers to the danger the UNA poses.

Secrecy Level

Refers to the ease at which the UNA can be hidden from the public.

Esoterism Level

Refers to the ease at which the UNA can be distinguished from a non-anomalous object.

Object Types

Every UNA has an Object Type, that describes the UNA in a single word. A UNAs Object Type can vary greatly, and hence there is a very large number of Object Types. As such, they will not be listed here. (A document may soon be made to explain all existing Object Types.
