Question About... *gulp* Kaldor Draigo...

So, I know this characters fluff is particularly disliked by many people, but I was just reading his character bio in the new codex and noticed a particularly troubling quote...

"Since that day the Supreme Grand Master has wandered the tides of Immaterium, no Daemon or god strong enough to defeat him."

What "god" in the warp could not defeat Draigo? Is this quote trying to say that the Chaos Gods cannot defeat him?

Draigo is like the special boy whose drawing you put on the fridge. Yea, good job Draigo.
Why defeat him, when you can have him locked away in the Warp, having him slaughter endless Daemons - They are eternal anyway? This way he makes absolutely ZERO difference, as opposed to being dead where he could become a martyr.

Seems to me like they want him to think that he's immortal, yet trapped; A much greater punishment and mockery than just killing him.
This of course is the real answer. Taking him to the warp denies him any actions of consequence in reality, and also denies him the glory of dying for the Emperor and Imperium.

But then again, how much must they loathe him to inflict this fate upon him rather than death? There's only one reason they would go to this much trouble.

They want to break him. Not to see him dead or defeated, but utterly broken and spent. They want to make HIM give up, because his surrender would be one of their greatest single victories, one that would be surpassed only by corrupting the Emperor himself.
You dont mean physically do you? Since he'a just a clump of emotion up/down there if I'm not mistaken.
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.
