Marik Ishtar is a character that's suspected to be coming soon. There are several files found in the game showing a character selection icon, and a player profile icon. Similar to Yugi Muto, he has an alter ego called Yami Marik. His Yami version is more likely to be an unlockable character to avoid having 2 of the same character. Marik Ishtar might make an appearance through a mini event just like the Yugi Muto event.
Based on the anime, Marik Ishtar takes control of other people and use their decks to duel and does not duel himself, unless he is in his Yami Marik form. If he were to appear, he could be bringing other gravekeeper monsters like Gravekeeper's Descendant, similar to Ishizu and Odion's duel rewards.
Poor bandit keith, he was all wasted when he was controller. He reminded me of the leader of some bikers called Skull Flames in the 5d's manga. Yusei defeated him too, just like Yugi/Joey defeated keith.

Omg just release marik ishtar instead of lame events
Sounds about right. Another problem would probably be the fact that they are now determined to not give characters decent level up and drop rewards anymore. And this is pretty much true for events as well. Any gravekeeper card would be considered as too "good" or fun. The same thing could be happening with Atticus if the red eyes structure deck is anything. Now they don't know what to give them.
True. We would need some kind of theme besides "such and such comes back" for an event. But what about stuff like bingo missions? I really wish they hadn't just turned that into tour guide from the underworld only now. Or was this the real purpose for it I wonder?
