Yep, Marshall joined very early too, but at first, he declined and said all 3 characters were spoken for.
Looking at the early dates, it appears that there was you on June 5, 2007.
Three of us joined on June 6, Drakk123 (aka Harat), me and PlayJeff45.
DanTheMonkeyMan (aka vox) joined on June 17.
Marshall joined on June 18.
Herodias and The Mad Dragon joined June 21.
DethAdder and Wargoat (aka Lord Apophis) joined on June 23. That rounds out the first 10.
So I joined the first day that the empire took in members with my Evil Twin character. I brought my main character over from the HCH later.
That was before the kitties were in the top spot. It was the HCH, followed by the Diplomats as I recall. I think the Orcas were at #3.
A trip down memory lane.
