A Force-sensitive, Atresh Pikil was educated at the Coruscant Jedi Temple to use the Force by the Jedi Order. When the Clone Wars erupted between the Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems, Pikil was selected as a Padawan and took up the rank of Commander in the Grand Army of the Republic.
In 19 BBY, Padawan Pikil was stationed at the Temple and participated in the annual Apprentice Tournament overseen by Jedi Master Ilena Xan. During the competition, Pikil faced off against Padawan Gumbrak Hoxz in the first round. Apprentice Tallisibeth Enwandung-Esterhazy, who was watching from the side-lines, thought that she wasn't a calculating fighter due to her overconfidence.
