Plot or Character?

So, for you, which one of these comes first – the plot or the character?  Who cares, eh?  It depends what you’re writing, who your audience/reader is, and in some extreme circumstances the combination of biscuits and pudding thatyou’re currently inspired by.

My current novel is inspired by a strong character who’s been with me for too many years now, and it’s time for her to find her own shoes instead of wearing mine.  I’ve a few other ideas going around, one character based with no plot, and the other plot-based with no major characters as yet.  It may be sensible to combine the two to create a good novel.  But!  Not thinking about two and three until one has been finished, and I’ve 30 000 words to edit.
