Sorry if this is the wrong place, I just read the Necron codex, and was there soem reference to the Omnissiah being a C'tan? Could someone clear this up?

There is the Dragon which is mentioned in Mechanicum which i think is a C'tan whcih the Mechanicum worship or somthing like that so i think that is what you mean.

Some spoilers for Mechanicum...

The Mechanicum worship the Machine God, which is technological knowledge in an abstract form. The Omnissiah is the embodiment of the Machine God. The Emperor put the Void Dragon (a C'Tan) on Mars, where its dreams caused the rise of technology there; the Mechanicum worship it as the Machine God. At this time the Emperor also set events in motion so that, when time came to unit Mars and Terra, he would be perceived to be the Omnissiah. In this way I think he was trying to ensure that through the wars on Terra technology would survive, and he'd eventually have an ally and sound technological base in the Mechanicum of Mars (as they'd see him as the avatar of their god).

The Void Dragon is causing a schism in the Mechanicum/Adeptus Mechanicus. Some who have found out about it have torn their bionics out as they're horrified at the truth (I think there's some short fiction on this in the Necron Codex). Some presumably know the truth and worship the Void Dragon as the Machine God (who may want to rule over them as the C'Tan did the Necrontyr?). Others may still decide to follow the Emperor and Imperium.
