That wasn't Traviss. She was just following the original Marvel Comics that had Mandalore being low tech.

That is not true actually. The idea of them being clones was suggested in 1981 in the Star Wars Compendium 2.

Maybe even earlier; I've heard it appeared in a 1978 source. I remember reading it in some kind of official magazine back in the old days, but whether this was 1978 or later I can't remember.

Ah, okay, thanks for the correction. I'm unfamiliar with most material that pre-dates the "modern" EU.

On the other hand there's the people who actually live on Mandalore who--according to TCW--appear to be trying to shake their millennia old reputation and heritage as a warrior culture in order to join the Alderanian pacifists' club.
Which, obviously, is exactly the opposite of how Traviss wrote her Mandalorians prior to the Clone Wars series, and she wrote her Mandalorians as existing during the time of that war (and even incoporating Mandalorian culture into the Republic army because Jango Fett).
There's also the minor problem of Traviss depicting all of the planet Mandalore as lacking in the type of urbanized cities that we see on Mandalore in TCW.

To be fair, the city seen in TCW does look like it's on it's own, smack in the middle of some kind huge wasteland. For all we know, that's the only large city on the planet and just about everywhere else is exactly as primitive as advertised...but then no culture that produces rocket packs, wrist mounted flame throwers and orbital diving wardroid mounts can be entierly non-industrialised, no?

Legacy is returning. Cade Skywalker is not.

The new Legacy will focus on a great-great grand-daughter of Han and Leia.

This is awesome news. So this will be a great granddaughter of Jania and Jagged Fel I assume?

I think this is more likely, for some reason. We've already seen Jaina's descendants, so it'd be nice to see one of Jacen's.

I'd forgotten about Allana. As you guys say that is probably more likely. I'm already really excited for this.

Fine, they were presumably Jaina's descendants.

But I'm still not sure which EU work you're referring to!

Was it in Legacy? If so, I've completely forgotten it.

That would be the pre-existing princess character in SW Legacy.

The Fel Royal Family in Legacy seem to be her descendents given their strong potential with the Force.
