I'm very new to Necrons (and 40k), so this question may be obvious or already answered.
The Deceiver's Grand Illusion ability says it can be used to redeploy a unit, and the 40k rulebook says an independent character can be deployed such that it is considered to have joined another unit. (In particular, it says "...you may specify that [the independent character] starts the game already inside a unit and place it in coherency with it."--p. 81) Does this mean that Grand Illusion can be used to redeploy both simultaneously?
My intuition about what the power would "realistically be like" (whatever that means in a fantasy world) says Yes, but a strict reading of "a unit" in the Grand Illusion description--and the fact that it does not include any reference to an attached character--makes me think No.
I myself believe that in the same way as an asp. champion (etc) when he joins the unit he becomes part of the unit, so I would say yes he can.
However I don't use the Deceiver much.
