This came up with a new player being intoduced to the game.
She wanted to play a character that appeared in the prequals, but with an "unknown" or not actually written "death"

In her case it was a youngling Mari Amithest or something.

The resoning is that she is some sort of survivor, managed to run and hide during the temple attack.

I was just looking for any thoughsts on using a canon character like that, one that is not really mentioned in more than a paragraph is that

Sure, why not? As long as the character could only be a starting level PC in ability. Back when my mid-90s campaign went to post-RotJ, I offered new players to be able to play Wicket, but I had no takers.

I don't see a problem with it; she's a background character who could have changed substantially since we last saw her.

I thought so too, but it seems Anankin actually "only" killed one of the clans, the clan that was training at the time.

I think this girl is bear clan, and there is actually not much if any legends or canon scourses on the clan after ep 3, however it never states that any of them actually dying or otherwise

"Clans">> each training class, is it's own clan?

I belive so. At least more or less.

If we look up "Bear Clan" we find only a reference to them being together in a class where obi wan is showing them some astrogation maps.

and looking at the list of younglings killed they are either form the same clan or the clan is not directly mentioned.

so it makes me draw the conclusion that eaach clan is one class
