Saylind Donels was a human male youngling of the Jedi Order's Bear Clan. In the year 22 BBY, Donels and other members of the clan were being trained in lightsaber use by Jedi Grand Master Yoda when Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi came to Yoda seeking advice on his inability to find the planet Kamino in the Jedi Archives. After Kenobi brought up a star map, Yoda had the younglings make suggestions and Donels' classmate J. K. Burtola correctly suggested someone had erased the planet from the archives.
