Laan Tik was a Force-sensitive Kajain'sa'Nikto who rose through the ranks of the Jedi Order, holding the rank of Jedi General during the Clone Wars against the Separatist Alliance. Early during the war, Laan Tik participated in the Battle of Mimban, where Laan Tik served with Clone Captain CT-7567 "Rex" and members of his 501st Legion, as well as the Mud Jumpers[1] of the 224th Division.[2]

During the intense battle against the forces of the Separatist Droid Army, Captain Rex ordered the 501st Legion to advance and the Mud Jumpers to reinforce Laan Tik. Laan Tik, however, responded that help wasn't needed. While Rex and Hardcase spoke on evacuating Junior Representative Jar Jar Binks out of the area, Laan Tik was killed by receiving a shot to the chest. Following this, Binks paid respects to Tik's body, and Captain Rex ordered a retreat.[1]

"General Laan Tik?"
"Nosa…not exactly."
―Rex, to Jar Jar Binks[src]

Jar Jar over Laan Tik's body

After Laan Tik's death, Binks was the highest-ranking member of the Galactic Republic forces. Not wanting to lose more lives to destroy the Separatist shield generator, Rex ordered that command be contacted for extraction. However, Rex planned to proceed to the shield generator alone and destroy it. After fighting through Separatist forces for hours and being wounded, Binks managed to save Rex using Laan Tik's lightsaber. At first, Rex confused Binks for Laan Tik until Binks revealed himself. Binks had taken Laan Tik's lightsaber so it wouldn't fall into enemy hands. Rex took the lightsaber to prevent Jar Jar accidentally hurting himself and then they proceeded towards the shield generator together, destroying droid forces with blasters. During the fighting, Jar Jar asked if he could use the lightsaber, to which Rex refused.[1]
