How do I make an awesome punk-rocker bard in a medieval fantasy (read: D&D or regional variant) setting without being silly, the comedy character or just plain out of place?

I really wanna play an anarchist rabblerouser and troublemaker who instigates the common folk to stand up against their betters and stuff while still kicking ass in combat and having epic rock-offs against enemy bards or sirens or what have you.

Bonus points if they use a violin.

Bonus bonus points if you can make the character female without being fetishbait.

sounds pretty straightforward desu

I would do it like this:
>daughter of a wealthy but minor noble family
>learns to play the lute or whatever the fuck at a young age
>brings her family great honor with her growing talent and fame
>her beauty and nimble fingers attract the attention of a lecherous old nobleman during a concert
>by the time she gets off stage the parents have already married her off
>runs away with her instrument in the night, cuts off all her hair, and changes her clothing so she can't be found (cue punk rock music montage)
>spends the rest of her life adventuring and playing music for her daily bread

have you tried not playing d&d?

Forgot actual gameplay details:
>typically high knowledge and CHA rolls because she's a well-educated noble who knows how to put on some manners when necessary
>probably should build toward silent image, charm person, and other "useful" (kek) bard spells
>at a high level try to avoid healing spells cause it's not really character appropriate. maybe go for animate objects, summoning, eyebite (which would be a great name for a punk band btw), etc

Do this. You don't even need a violin

But First Citizen Flagg isn't a girl.

Yes, but that's what my group plays right now. It's easy, casual fun and high-flying adventure and it's okay for what it does. Not my favourite system though.

Damn, you got me. Well, here's your reply I guess.

Why is she crying?

>>44747444
I assume she is a Redsox supporter.

So basically yet another home run angry child.
How refreshing.

Here is my take on the metal bard for pathfinder.

Caution: Optimizers, munchkins and powergamers, yes, i know this guy is not well made. I sacrificed power for something that is cool thematically.

He has a hell of a buff that he gives when he starts playing. He has half starting gold for his level. He can fight a bit, but has only 8 AC (6 after buffs if i remember correctly). Bard hp. Generally a guy who inspires rage and battlehunger with his electric guitar (custom magic instrument with permanent ghost sound).
