"Youngling" was a term for any child of any species.[2]Force-sensitive younglings who were taken to the Jedi Temple to be trained as Jedi were known as "Jedi younglings"[1] but had the specific title of "Jedi Initiates."[3] Children in the Path of the Open Hand cult were known as the Littles. The title of "Children" was reserved for specific adults trusted by "the Mother" to carry out missions.
