Default The Emperor-Is he a C'tan?

From what I have heard of C'tan, they are incredibly powerful beings with psyker abilities in excess...

To me that sounds a lot like the Emperor.

Just a thought...

Oh no. C'tan are NOT incredibly powerful psyker beings. C'tan don't have any psyker abilities at all. In fact, any kind of warp power or psychic ability is incredibly dangerous to them. So the Emperor is just as likely to be a C'tan as a polar bear is to live in a volcano.

In any case, the death of the Emperor happened long before any of the C'tan were awake.

Actually I have a question somewhat regarding this subject. The Void Dragon is obsessed with technology and is in stasis in Mars. Does that make him the machine spirit (or whatever kooky god the Mechanicus worship)? and if so, woudn't that mean that the Void Dragon is keeping the Emperor alive on the golden throne?

No, no he is not. Omnissah is the machine spirit and Omnissah is a computer. The golden throne doesnt even have a machine spirit.

1. The Omnissiah is the God Of All Machines, which the Adeptus Mechanicus relate to the Emperor, so the Golden Throne, by Mechanicus standards, is powered by the Emperor.

Ok, thanks for clearing that up. My fluff knowledge doesnt dwell much past the Deathguard and Chaos.
