A Force-sensitive Human male, Avan Post hailed from the planet Chandrila, one of the Core Worlds. Discovered at a young age, Avan was brought into the Jedi Order and studied the ways of the Force on Coruscant. After completing every trial in the Jedi Temple, he eventually attained the rank of Jedi Master. At some point before the Battle of Naboo, Avan took Olana Chion as his Padawan learner, and both served together for over a decade until Chion reached the rank of Jedi Knight.
In 22 BBY, Avan was stationed at the Jedi Temple during the time when the Galactic Senate called in the Military Creation Act. After learning that Obi-Wan Kenobi had been captured, Avan joined Mace Windu's strike team of 200 Jedi that were dispatched from Coruscant and traveled to Geonosis to rescue Kenobi from Separatist captivity. Upon arriving on the planet, Avan participated in the Battle of Geonosis, the first battle of the Clone Wars that broke out between the Galactic Republic and the Separatists.
During the early stages of the galactic conflict, Avan served in the rank of General in the Grand Army of the Republic and helped the Republic battle the Separatist Droid Armies on various battlefronts. Nine months later, Avan fought in the Battle of Ando in space over the planet. However, he perished after he destroyed seven Techno Union Hardcell-class interstellar transports.
