Marcurio is a mage who is feisty and sassy, saying things such as "Try not to walk into any spike-filled pits or filthy skeever dens."
He is very interested in Dwemer culture and technology, though he admits he would like them more were they not constantly trying to kill him. When in ancient Nordic tombs, he reflects on his seemingly extensive knowledge of Nordic culture and history.
Marcurio specializes in Destructionspells. He prefers to cast Chain Lightning, which damages the Dragonborn, their summons, and non-hostile characters, including foes. Because of this, Marcurio may induce a bounty on the Dragonborn. Marcurio prefers to use his default robes, refusing to equip any other type of robe given to him. However, he equips armor and weapons given to him.
If equipped with a shield, he uses it and any weapons when he runs out of magicka. As with all other followers, Marcurio uses any sword, bow, or axe given to him, as long as they are stronger than his default weaponry.
As with every spouse, Marcurio opens a shop, in which items can be bought and sold. Daily, he can give his spouse a share of the profits, in the amount of 100 . This amount stacks if uncollected. He can also be asked to make a meal.
If Hearthfire is installed, he may be hired as a steward, and if the Dragonborn has children, he is one of the few male spouses who have a dialog option in which the Dragonborn may ask how the children are.
