Necromancy is an ickey branch of magic that can only ever bring death and is practiced in the dark. Nobody bothered telling Marrik this. OK they did, but after an encounter with a ghost reminded him why he wanted magic in the first place he just kind of stopped caring and found his own uses. Does he plan on ruling the world? Hardly. Marrik just wants to run his shop while using the power of necromancy to farm with. Pity the world won't let him be. Oh well, the Union was nice enough to let him in since it generally means fewer would be holy warriors mistaking him for someone to kill, and they share a lot of common enemies. It is a far from perfect arrangement, but life isn't perfect and he'll take what he can get.
Trickle Charge: Anything with life can give Marrik power, and he can draw life without killing or even permanently hurting people, but compared to murdering intelligent beings this buildup is slow and frustrating. If Marrik has exhausted himself magically his PL drops to 24 until he has had a minimum of a day of not doing anything more than simple magic, potentially longer if he is prevented from drawing on more than himself. If he somehow were to gather the life of something recently slain or a rough equivalent even if he didn't personally perform the act this can be sidestepped, but other than murdering a sapient creature it is hard to get that sort of quick energy easily.
In Need of a Hand: Other than minor cantrips or basic gathering of energy Marrik needs at least one hand free either on it's own or to hold onto an object focus for his power to work.
Focus: The Sight that gives Marrik the ability to both see what spell work is active and allows him to see the dead requires him to focus. If he's too panicked to think straight, focusing on something to the exclusion of everything else, drugged into senselessness, or plain knocked out it won't work and will leave him blind to anything other than the mundane world.
The Dark Side has Cookies: Necromancy is addictive. Even with Marrik's reluctance to use it on people he has in the past so knows just how good it can feel. It is like a drug that not only feels awesome but if used often enough could turn him from noteworthy magic user to unholy terror. Whenever he uses his magic it is always there like an itch, and whenever he tops off that itch gets worse because of how little his usual replenishment methods add in comparison to straight out murdering sentient life.
Sunny Side: After having to go to traditionally dark places for Power and after spending time negotiating with the dead Marrik is more likely than most to expose himself to the dark or potentially dangerous creatures of the multiverse. This isn't to cure them. Rather it is to try finding ways to put their skills to better uses, revel in their curse, and if at all possible try seeking a way to live with the mundanes of the world or at least isolate themselves so no harm will be done. The only exceptions are where a creature /must/ kill others to live either by consuming their flesh, outright consuming souls, spreading misery and despair, or hurting children. That last one will generally provoke a response no matter if its better to keep quiet or not.Young and Untrained: While relatively strong, in spite of running on comparatively next to nothing, Marrik has only been practicing magic for a handful of years. He hasn't found the best way to do things yet and often makes mistakes seasoned magi would avoid or simply use more mana than otherwise necessary.
