* ''VideoGame/{{Strife}}'': Macil apparently sent you after the pieces of the Sigil to acquire the complete artifact and free the One God, though he was obviously insane and possessed by a Spectre, so he might have originally had honest intentions before he got possessed. And the Oracle (in the "bad" story branch) does the same thing, sending you after the Sigil pieces and finally mocking you for falling for its ruse. In the bad ending, it's also strongly implied that your MissionControl, Blackbird, was actually the [[BigBad Entity]] manipulating you into acquiring the Sigil and using it to free the Entity.
