His life's mission was to defeat death and he swore to one day return from the grave. Sigan became too powerful and the [[King of Camelot|King]] at the time ordered him to be executed. Before his death, Sigan cursed [[Camelot]], saying that he would one day return and raze the city to the ground. It was said that he didn't want his wealth and power to die with him and that up until his execution he worked on a way to cheat death.

This is revealed to be true hundreds of years later. After [[Camelot]] miners uncover his tomb, a thief called [[Cedric]] works his way up to a [[servant|position]] in the [[House of Pendragon|Royal Household]] and uses this to enter the tomb. He intends to steal Sigan's riches and jewels, including a [[Cornelius Sigan's jewel|large blue heartshaped jewel]] that one of the miners, [[Tom (miner)|Tom]], drunkenly told him about. The [[Cornelius Sigan's Jewel |jewel]] contains Sigan's soul and when [[Cedric]] breaks the jewel out of its setting, he becomes possessed by Cornelius Sigan's soul. Sigan subsequently launches an [[Cornelius Sigan's Attack on Camelot|attack on Camelot]] that forces [[Merlin]] to ask [[Kilgharrah]] for help.
 
   
After witnessing [[Merlin]]'s magic, Sigan suggests that he and Merlin form an alliance. However, when Merlin rejects the offer, Sigan attempts to possess him in order to bind their powers. Using a [[spells|spell]] that Kilgharrah recently taught him, Merlin is able to trap Sigan's soul back inside the jewel. [[Uther]] has the vault where the tomb and soul of Cornelius Sigan lay resealed (''[[The Curse of Cornelius Sigan]]'').

*Cornelius Sigan shares similarities with the character of Lord Voldemort from the [http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Special:WikiActivity Harry Potter ]series by J.K. Rowling.
**Both are sorcerers with immense powers.
 
**Both seal their soul, either partially or wholly to an object as means of gained immortality.
 
**Both have a strong connection to an animal; Voldemort's nostrils were slitted like a snake's, he had a pet snake, and he belonged to the Slytherin house and was the heir of Slytherin himself, both of which are symbolised with a snake. Sigan's name, in-universe, means 'raven', and he wears black feathers that likely belong to the same animal, or are at least meant to represent ravens.
 
*Sigan is played by the actor who played Ragetti in Pirates of the Caribbean.
