Maybe he is a warp entity, much like the enslavers are warp entities, and the astral hounds (Hounds of Tindalos anyone?), and the other interesting one that turned up in the ye olde Rogue Trader: They Vampire. The could drain psi energy like other warp entities but could also assume other forms (Emperor seems to have done that before) and did not perish like warp entities (immortal). Vampires and warp entities also (according to RT) have an influence ability.

Could it be the Emperor is a Vampire? Or became a Vampire when mortally wounded? Or using the abilities/ technique of the Vampire to maintain his life?

"when I see a bird that walks like a duck and swims like a duck and quacks like a duck, I call that bird a duck."

if the Emperor is acting like a Vampire, and has used other abilities of the Vampire, the maybe he is a Vampire?

Too far?
