Technically, my first character was a bard that I rolled up in middle school using the 3rd edition books that I had checked out from the library. Never got to play him though, because I didn't really have anyone to play with. It wasn't until I was a senior in high school that I found a group that was playing VTM, so I created a dreadlocked, crazy Malkavian vampire named Lia. I believe that she heard voices, but I don't really remember. Only got to play her for a few months before graduating.
Then in college came a string of started-but-not-finished campaigns (mostly due to me moving), with another bard (whose name I don't remember), a druid shifter named Yarrow, another druid named Rown, and finally a kobold monk named Neeko (he was my favorite). "You insulted the ancestors! Meeko doesn't like you no more." *proceeds to use naughty words for which he doesn't understand the meaning*
