That's certainly a given for any kind of main protagonist, I believe. Otherwise Clem's character would suffer major derailment. I also agree about a younger character, but it still needs to be someone old enough to be considered her guardian, methinks. I just can't see Clem being on her own, she's only nine. Even Carl in the comic book series needs the help of an adult for most things, despite how independent he is now (although I'm only following the TV series, not the comic books, so don't spoil any of it please!!) It would seem rather unrealistic and rather un-walking dead like to follow a small group of survivor kids.
