Marcurio the Tsundere Apprentice Wizard by burntnoodles Marcurio the Tsundere Apprentice Wizard by burntnoodles
I subconsciously formatted this as most tsun moment -> most dere moment hahaha

I swear to god, can't even interact with Marcurio without him bitching at you or giving you some smart aleck remark D:<

Skyrim says arrogant, I say, TSUNDERE! He reminds me of a certain tsundere anime dude who also specializes in sorcery. Note that he is more tsuntsun than he is deredere. I believe his deredere moment is when you use healing hands on him and he's like "What?! You care about me?!"

Anyways, this is Marcurio from Skyrim. He's an Imperial mage-type follower that can be found at the Bee and the Barb tavern place in Riften. He's actually pretty useful even though he complains a lot. Just remember to get him some good armor and a shield cause he sucks balls with defense.

He demands 500 gold per use, but apparently if you marry him he'll serve you for free. He's like a nagging old wife, man. I hope he cooks good meals.

Awwe that last one is so cute x3 Normally I don't go for the bitchy characters, but something about Marcurio is too lovable hehe! Especially when he's randomly sweet, and when you marry him and he gets all melty and sweet for his love~

I love his snark, actually - and it's always read as more teasing than tsun to me, apart from the first comment. It's enjoyable to have a follower who actually has a semblance of a personality despite the meager amount of dialogue they get.

Awesome comic!

Him teasing is why, in my head cannon, my Khajiit lady (actually, all my characters are Khajiit women) fell in love with him
JessieReigne Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2015
Awww, he's the only good-looking female marriage option, but it's okay. He's sweet. And glitches to where he dances in place when he's at home a lot. And I'd assume he's a good cook. The homecooked meals heal 10 points of health, stamina, and magic.

Umm... Yet another dumb question, but Tsun? Dere?
KindCritic Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2015  Student Writer
I had to dismiss him before I got on Odaviin. As soon as I got back to Skyrim, I RUN to Riften, burst through the doors of the Bee and Barb, and what's the first thing he does?

Takes a swig of ale and says, "I knew you couldn't stay away. Admit it, you were lost without me."

I love marcurio so much i always see his nagging as like ugh i didn't sign up for this -_- then you kinda grow on him but he doesn't wanna show it so hes like I AM AN APPRENTICE WIZARD, NOT A PACKMULE okfinewhatdoyouneedmetohold. and note im only doing this cause you need me to. not becuase you look over burdened and i want to help and its not because i like or you anything either.. so.. don't go getting any funny ideas.....

Lol, Marcurio always reminded me as Kuzco from the emperor's new groove if Kuzco was as a mage. He talks big, he acts big, but in the end he's just a whiny little scaredy cat who is no where near as powerful as he thinks he is... 

My only real example-

 This is how I always thought the conversation really seemed to feel when you say "I need to trade some things with you" :

Marcurio: I am a Master of the arcane! Not a pack mule!

Me: Oh really master of the arcane wearing apprentice robes, are you an ARCHMAGE?

Marcurio:......... Oh very well make it quick!

my first reaction to marcurio when I said we have to separate away "BRO, we just separates away, NO, Marcurio await, HAH *creys* I didn't mean that..."
His words are sarcastic

He may be all these things, but my Dragonborn will stand by him now and forever.

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwww Marcurio :heart: my first love in Skyrim :XD: When he said "If you get scared, take comfort from the fact that I am here," I feel so fuzzy warm :blush: But in the end, Onmund took my little elf to the Chapel of Love instead :XD:
Yazmarohma42 Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2017
Marcurio must be mad when Onmund take your elf away from him...
icyhugs Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yup, that's why he always Chain Lighting in revenge :XD: So called 'friendly fire' :XD:
Yazmarohma42 Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2017
He also did say it to me and when I heard it my heart melt... It was so sweet for him to said that to me...
Reichee Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2014
Haha, I love this! Marcurio is the best companion for all his sassy commentary (and because he's strong as hell).
Zoethehuntress Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh gods, the first time I went adventuring with him it was in Bleak Falls Barrow. Halfway through he goes "If you get scared, take comfort from the fact that I am here." I almost died laughing.
Awdren Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2013
hmm, when I use a healing spell on him, his tone sounds unimpressed to me.  Despite his cocky nature I want him as a steward, surviving a blow from a giant is good enough for me.
LadyColdWinter Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2013
Perhaps the most accurate depiction of Marcurio's personality, ever.

Funny. I took a quiz on which husband to marry in TES V: Skyrim, and Marcurio is the result.

That just made me realize you can easily make a pun with the name of that buff guy who tests you before you can enter the Hall of Valor in Sovngarde.
