A Short Story Of Mekhane The Broken God: SCP Universe by DeusXmachina: 1:59pm On Oct 17
Mekhane or Also known as The Broken God is an Elder God who is the God of Metal, Machines and knowledge.

According to the Myths, the Mekhane shared dominion over humanity with Yaldabaoth, the Broken God representing intellect and progress, while the Demiurge represented instinct and the more animalistic side of the humans for a short while Mekhane allied with Yaldabaoth to create Humanity. Yaldabaoth gave Humans their form and instinct while Mekhane gave humans Knowledge.

The followers of Mekhane were known as the Mekhanites, and overtime many civilizations started to become more civilized and progressive, which greatly angered Yaldabaoth, who wanted to bring humanity back to a more animalistic state she intended, however Mekahne stepped in to stop her From taking humans and turning them to animals.

This led to the occult war between the Mekhanites and the early Sarkites (followers of Yaldaboath), which caused the Bronze-age collapse. Mekhane Knowing a battle between two gods would lead to great destruction he chose to sacrificed himself to Trap Yaldabaoth.
Mekhane confronted Yaldabaoth during this war, and defeated the Demiurge by shattering himself into a "brass cage", trapping the other god in it to save humanity. His shattered pieces spread across the Earth, alongside his followers who would form the Church of the Broken God.

Today only pieces of him are found through out cosmos taking the name The Broken God. Many of these pieces would later be classified as different SCP-objects by the Foundation.

Mekhane's parting message.

"Hello, my children.

Although you have grown immensely since your earliest days, you have much room to grow. Your species' intellect is merely a bud, with so much potential. Your weapons are powerful; your medicine is supreme; your engineering is beautiful. With proper guidance and care, you are sure to reach an elevated state of being, and transcend your bodies for something more whole and perfect.

That is why it pains me so dearly to request that you leave this place immediately. Your studying and probing have almost resulted in the end of all I had worked towards to keep you alive. If you comply, I guarantee that The Devourer will never escape, and your species will be free to pursue the enlightenment of technology for all eternity.

Let this be my final gift to you, directly from the center of my broken heart."

Since I've mentioned mekhane it is only fair I give Yaldaboath's story.

This one is titled: I Have Seen the Dragon in the Great Brass Cage

Upon the mountain came a man, His lips were sealed but his eyes are many. In his company were beasts and serpents, Chained to his many hands reluctantly following. I came in front of him in fear and worship, Listening to the prophecy from the tongueless prophet. The serpents coiled and the beasts restless, But each held back by the eyes ever watching.

"I have seen the dragon in the Great Brass Cage," He said, "Its claws are sharp and its breeds are many. Its mouth consuming stars and its scales large as cities, It coils and bends with the cage rusting.

"I have heard chanting and seen his servants, Reborn from mere men to serpents and beasts. Sacrifices were made in exchange for power, But the great dragon never needs to feed.

"It fed on the bodies of gods not the flesh of men, And it fell into slumber for ages and ages. But its glory reduces not and his crown ever flaming, Only a fool would claim mastery to such a thing.

"Pity the Great Sorcerer King of Adytum, Who regards himself a god but an insect merely. Pity his Klavigar and proud Karcists, Who seek to rule the land but will all perish.

"Pity the followers of the great brass machine, Their master scattered still in pieces. Pity the mortals who know not about the dragons, Descendants of the same blood but will die in ashes."

My face went pale as the beasts roared, And I could hear the serpents shifting in darkness. The moon shed down a blood red light, As the mouthless prophet spoke once more.

"I have seen the dragon in the great brass cage," He said, "Its teeth are sharp and its eyes are opening. Its crown shines and its throne to be remade, And when the cage shatters it will breathe

Probably.
