Janel Tigan was an unjoined Trill, the older brother of Ezri Dax and Norvo Tigan, and the son of Yanas Tigan.

By 2375, estrangement from his family, in particular his mother, had driven Janel and his brother into criminal activity and they found themselves associated with the Orion Syndicate.

Under the pressure of that association, specifically Thadial Bokar, and the continued deterioration of their family life, Janel and Norvo were complicit in the murder of Morica Bilby, a friend of Miles O'Brien and the widow of an operative of the Syndicate. Because her husband had died on an assignment for the Syndicate, the organization's leadership said that she needed to be provided for. To that end, her name was added to the Tigan family business's payroll as a "shipping consultant" with no actual work involved. Morica kept pressuring the brothers for more money to maintain her silence. In the end, Norvo killed her.

Ezri ultimately uncovered her family's ties to the Syndicate and their role in the crime, helping to bring them to justice despite the pain it brought to the family. Ezri urged her brother to leave the family business behind and a find a new life elsewhere, promising him he'd be be happier somewhere else. (DS9: "Prodigal Daughter")

Janel was portrayed by Mikael Salazar.
According to the novel Saturn's Children, his mirror universe counterpart and that of his mother were murdered by the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance in 2375 for helping more than three hundred Terran slaves escape from New Sydney and Sappora VII. They were turned in by Norvo, who received a full pardon.
