What was the first character you ever created for rps and stories? What is the character's name and what is the story behind the name and why you created the character? The first character that I ever created was a witch named Essence, who was also a vampire. The reason I named her that was- when I name my characters, I just write names down on scrap pieces of paper and put them in a hat. And that was the name that I had chosen for her. The reason I created her was because my best friend and I were collaborating on a story and I needed a character. But I wanted the character to be modeled after me as much as possible- except the witch and vampire part. I used her for years since 2006 when she was first created. But after about ten years of using her, I got bored with her and sent her to my character grave yard.
