MIA: 15 Major Characters Whose Fates Are Unknown

From Wedge Antilles to Asajj Ventress, whatever happened to these characters?

Where are they now?

The fates of a number of major Star Wars characters have been left hanging by the films or the abrupt end of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. What became of those individuals in official Star Wars canon? Are they still alive at the time of the new film trilogy, aka Episodes VII, VIII, and IX?

Some of them we have answers for, mostly from comic books or novels. But most of them are still unresolved.

For the purposes of this list, I'm not including anyone that we already know is still alive in the new trilogy's timeline, such as Admiral Ackbar. I'm also not including anyone who's in currently-unfolding storylines. I'm dying to know what becomes of the crew of the Ghost from Star Wars Rebels, for example, but their story is in the process of being told now, and we have every reason to believe that we will find out in the future how their stories end.

If you're not caught up on the most current TV episodes, novels, and comic books, there are major spoilers ahead.
