Nicanas Tassu Lightsaber in Star Wars Canon
Nicanas Tassu learns the ways of the Force at the Jedi Temple on Coruscant. He ascends to the rank of Jedi Knight within the Jedi Order. In 22 BBY, Tassu joins Jedi Master Mace Windu’s Jedi strike team tasked with rescuing Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and Senator Amidala from the planet Geonosis. Separatist leader Count Dooku is holding them prisoner there.
When the Jedi land on the planet, a battle ensues between the Jedi and Separatist forces. The skirmish becomes known at the First Battle of Geonosis, the inaugural battle of the Clone Wars. Early in the battle, Tassu and fellow Jedi Sephjet Josall locate the Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi. Tassu and Jasall each toss a spare lightsaber to Skywalker and Kenobi, respectively so that the newly freed Jedi may fight in the battle. Tassu then turns and resumes deflecting blaster bolts with his lightsaber and fighting in the battle.
Although the fate of Nacanas Tassu is unknown, many of the 212 members of the Jedi task force die during the battle due to being heavily outnumbered by Separatist battle droids.
