generally speaking, no they don't like each other. They might work together against a common foe or for a common goal, but C'tan eat each other hence why there are only four left....

Are i understand so typically the C'tan don't like one an other, on a off note is there ever any fluff on how many C'tan
there were or where they came from\how they were created this is for personal interest.i was talking to a friend and realized how much i don't understand a lot about "crons"

Well basically, get yourself the necron codex. It's full of stuff.

i dont think they like nor hate each other there isnt really much information on it.. I dont really read the fluff myself (mainly because i think the marine fluff is a load of rubbish) but had a good read of the necron codex last night and was pretty good so suggest you start there.. I dont remember anything about numbers but it talks about their origins and how there came to be just 4..

I may be imagining things, but as I recall, that was at least in part, due to the laughing god having, well a laugh!
As the natural form of a c'tan is a solar parasite, it would be logical to assume that undiscovered ones may still exist and be shoehorned in. 8O

no, it was the deceiver rather than the laughing god, which although some beleive to be the same, in the context of this they are different - not least because this was pre 'Eldar Gods' as the old ones created the Eldar who then subsequently got gods from the convenience store presumably

its all complicated, subjective and paradoxical as is the way with religion - you can kind of see the Emperor's point of view really

as for C'Tan, i wouldn't try to look at it from the like/dislike stand point as i doubt that they would

I love the background for the C'tan and how they brought about the Necorn race by corupting Necrontyr. I think It's been a long time since I've read up on it. I'd think though as all C'tan compete for food they'd just stay clear of each other rather than war, unless food was getting low.

according to codex necrons it was the laughing god, but looking at wikipedia it says deceiver so I wonder what their source was.. where did you find deceiver Drax?
