Norvo Tigan was a Trill and the younger brother of Ezri Tigan and Janel Tigan, and the son of Yanas Tigan and Mr. Tigan. He and Ezri had a close relationship; he even used her childhood nickname, 'Zee', when addressing her. He was not nearly as close to the rest of his family. A brilliant but discouraged young artist and poet with a quiet, sensitive manner, Norvo was an easy target for his controlling mother. Norvo was resentful of Yanas' constant criticism and refusal to acknowledge his worth.

In 2375 he finally snapped, and murdered Morica Bilby, a friend of Miles O'Brien and a woman who was pressuring the family for more money. When Ezri discovered this, she blamed her mother and herself, her mother for her controlling ways, and herself for not seeing her brother's problems earlier. Norvo was sentenced to thirty years in prison for his crime. (DS9: "Prodigal Daughter")

After being ruthlessly interrogated by the Breen later that year Ezri deliriously rambled a reference to Norvo, stating "I'm not just saying this because I'm your sister. You have a gift." (DS9: "'Til Death Do Us Part")

Norvo was played by Kevin Rahm.
Rahm commented: "I had played a Trill in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine— which was really cool." [1]
According to the novella Saturn's Children, his mirror universe counterpart (β) informed the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance that his mother and brother had helped more than three hundred Terran slaves escape from New Sydney and Sappora VII. Norvo received a full pardon. According to Rise Like Lions, he was still an agent of the Alliance in 2378.
