"We're looking at the first year of Caleb's life because this is before he took the name Kanan. We're looking at the first year of Caleb's life after Order 66, the day before, and about give or take a year after. This is not designed to be, just to be clear, sum total. It's not like this will completely fill in the gap of Order 66 and 'A New Dawn.' This is a hugely significant event in his life, obviously, very seminal for him, but it's not designed to be encyclopedic."
―Greg Weisman, on the setting for The Last Padawan[src]
