Is there any way to restore these points besides Training them (good luck with INT draining wraith BTW)?

I would allow the Restore spells to deal with characteristic drain by
monsters, but not for points sacrificed to create a familiar. (Which
is why I don't recommend making familiars that lack characteristics
that aren't trainable). On the other hand I've never really been happy
with the way that sorcerers have to sacrifice anything other than POW
to create familiars.
