Draigo is Sisyphus.

His fluff in the book is worded poorly, but he's stuck in the Warp fighting daemons for eternity because it amuses the Chaos Gods to let him think he's striking a blow for humanity by burning down Nurgle's garden and smashing Tzeentch's crystal labyrinth to dust, only to watch it become whole again with but a moment's thought from the Gods.

Draigo is and accomplishes as much as the energizer bunny. He is a GK supreme grandmaster and is a prize. If they can break him they might be able to replace the more independent Abbaddon who is just using them and they need him. They have the time and resources for this to play out for as long as it takes. Inevitably if he can't escape he will break. Blood for the Blood God.

The other theory that I like in a very short and dumbed down description, is that eventually he will get worn down, eventually he will just want to give up and tire of fighting. Or through some other reason, will eventually be susceptible to corruption, and therefore become the first Grey Knight to fall to chaos, one of their greatest champions, fallen. Powerful blow.

He would still perceive himself as himself, and the warp domains as physical representations of their gods' personalities. I imagine it would be the same for daemon princes, due to the fact that their minds are originally mortal.

So probably just an incorporeal being of soul energy amid a sea of emotion yes. But that's not he he would see it himself.
