Who was your first follower in Skyrim?

    I think mine was boring old Lydia because when I first started playing Skyrim I was a gaming imbecile who played all games as if I were on rails.

    I'd say it's Lydia for almost everyone considering she's practically forced on you...

    ...some inquisitive players may have scored Faendal/Sven on their first run.

    When i first played skyrim i spent a lot of time admiring the views and getting ahold of the gameplay so somehow i ran into faendal and sven and decided to help farndal since i thought he deserved the girl more than sven. in gratitude he became my follower and i assume was eaten by wolves or ambushed by bandits because after traveling once i never saw him again.

    It was actually Sven but I swapped him for Bitchy Lydia afterwards, I believe.

    Faendal. I helped him make sure Sven didn't meddle in true love!

    Was I the only one who got Jenassa before anyone else?

    I can't quite remember which one was my first follower but it was either Faendal, or Sven. However my favorite follower of all time is Cicero.

    I resisted having a follower for almost two years. Finally I figured I'd give it a whirl...

    I chose Belrand. That guy cracks me up; he and Mjoll are probably my favorite followers (Barbas doesn't count).

    I never use followers. Perhaps that's why I'm always a pound away from being over encumbered.

    A combination of selectivity and lots of trips to the market xD

    I remember that my first was Janessa, but I was always a "lone wolf" in Skyrim, so I haven´t really enjoyed having a follower.

    But since my Greenskin, I am very fond of Erik the Slayer. Hell, I even relied on him to save my skin and he did many times.

    Interestingly, I have never used Jenassa or Erik. I guess I haven't ever played a character that both ran into them and wasn't creeped out by Jenassa or annoyed by Erik.

    I think my first real follower was Serana, and this only for the time she is forced on you. I think i used mjoll once as a backpack.
