Discovered to be Force-sensitive during infancy, Nicanas Tassu was taken to the Coruscant Jedi Temple for training in the ways of the Force. Eventually graduating from the Temple's academy, Tassu was selected to be a Padawan by a Jedi Master. After years of study and having constructed a green-bladed lightsaber for himself, Tassu went on to pass his Trials of Knighthood and was given the rank of Jedi Knight by the Jedi High Council.
In 22 BBY, Jedi Tassu was stationed at the Temple when Master of the Order Mace Windu rallied all available Jedi to join a strike team to free the captured Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and Senator of Naboo, Padmé Amidala from execution by the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Arriving on the dusty plains of the foundry world, Jedi Tassu aided in storming the Petranaki arena with his comrades in order to free the prisoners. Armed with an extra lightsaber, Tassu was assigned to arm the two captured Jedi with the help of fellow Jedi Sephjet Josall. Rushing the arena floor, Josall and Tassu were able to pass on their spare weapons.
