Evan Asani was a male Human Jedi Knight who served the Old Jedi Order during the final years of the Republic Classic Era. In 22 BBY, Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi, his Padawan Anakin Skywalker, and Senator Padmé Amidala were captured by the Separatist Alliance on the planet Geonosis and sentenced to death. That was when a Jedi strike force, which included Asani, arrived on the planet to rescue the Jedi. Imperceptibly penetrating the Petranaki Arena, the Jedi prevented the execution, and Evan began to fight against a huge army of the separatist battle droids. However, Asani was among those that were killed, as well as most of the fighting in the arena of the Jedi. The surviving members of the Order were sentenced to death, only to be saved due to the arrival of reinforcements led by Grand Master Yoda in the face of national teams of clone troopers.
Raised within the Jedi Temple, Asani eventually graduated from the academy and was selected by a Jedi Master as a Padawan. Accompanying his master for years on assignments and missions from the Jedi High Council, Asani eventually took the Trials of Knighthood and attained the rank of Jedi Knight. At some point in his training, Asani crafted for himself a lightsaber with a green crystal.
In 22 BBY Asani was stationed at the Coruscant Temple when Master of the Order Mace Windu assembled a task force to rescue the captive Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi, Padawan Anakin Skywalker, and Galactic Senator Padmé Amidala from their Geonosian captors. Arriving on the world with two hundred other Jedi, Asani fought for his life in the Petranaki Arena as the Separatist Alliance unveiled their droid army.
