- "Master Tanis, Commander Flybane, stay close."
- ―Anakin Skywalker
Tanis was a Jedi Master who served the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars. In 22 BBY, Tanis fought against the Confederacy of Independent Systems on the planet of Ryloth alongside Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker. While Skywalker was making a holorecord in which he requested aid from the Republic, he was spotted by a Confederate battle droid. Skywalker attacked the droid, advising Tanis and Commander Flybane to stay close. The battle was eventually won by the Republic.
Behind the scenes
Master Tanis was mentioned on the official LucasArts website, in a holorecord made by Anakin Skywalker on September 14, 2009. Although the record served as promotional material for the video game Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes, Tanis did not appear in the finished product.
