Okay, so I'm not sure I understand. As far as I can remember Alpharius kept it secret from other Primarchs that he had a twin according to the fluff. And now you're saying he was pretending to have a twin... whom he was still keeping secret?

I think he was pretending to have a fictional secret twin which he kept a bit secret but not too secret whilst having an actual secret twin which he kept totally secret.

In fact that's not my opinion, that's is absolute FACT. It's totally in the books, but I'm not going to do the work for you, read them yourselves.

You're all wrong. Alpharius never existed. Omegon just called himself Alpharius and claimed to have a twin brother whos name was Omegon coz' he thought it was a stupid name and didn't want to keep it for himself. In actual fact, he had a twin named Stinky Lulu but was far too embarrassed to ever mention him (Stinky Lulu had terrible BO and stuttered) and thus that became the real secret he kept and is still keeping. The guise of Alpharius and Omegon was just a cover to turn attention away from the real truth.

The human appendix. Proof of a higher power. A divine kill switch so to speak.

No one really likes a smartass, but people tend to like a dumbass even less.

Pfft nonsense, it was all Cruze and Corax both pretending to be the Twin and the secret twin alternately.

i can't honestly see Dan Abnett going against the grain and inventing a twin if the powers that be at GW/BL didn't want it. I doubt he would have fooled Magnus or the Emperor with illusionary tricks.
the question is...different i suppose but i think i am going with the canon on this one.
