- "Time, time, there's no time for time. A murderer's on the loose and it's my job to find him."
- ―Lieutenant Tan Divo, Coruscant Security Force inspector
Tan Divo was a human male police inspector in the Coruscant Security Force during the Clone Wars between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Though somewhat arrogant and not always successful, Divo was able to attain the rank of Police Lieutenant.
Lieutenant Tan Divo was assigned to several notable cases including the kidnapping of the two daughters of Pantoran Chairman Papanoida. Though Divo made assurances of his ultimate success in the investigation, his team missed blood on the bottom of Papanoida's Icon of the Moon Goddess during a scan of the chairman's apartment on the planet Coruscant. This prevented Divo from receiving a vital clue to the identity of the kidnappers, and the case from Divo's perspective went cold.
Divo was also called to investigate the death of Senator Onaconda Farr. Relying on his instincts as an investigator, Divo rejected Senator Padmé Amidala's opinions as to the cause of Farr's death, concluding that Farr had been poisoned. Divo's dismissal led her to pursue a separate investigation with the assistance of Senator Bail Organa. After an attempt on the lives of Amidala and Organa at the Coruscant docks the body of Senator Mee Deechi was discovered in his office, and Divo opened a second investigation into Deechi's homicide.
Divo was able to gather evidence in both cases and further his investigations. Throughout the affair, Divo had little regard for politics and was frustrated by Amidala's constant meddling. After Lolo Purs, Farr's assistant, accused Senator Halle Burtoni of Kamino of attacking her and as Farr had been killed with a Kaminoan-engineered poison, Divo arrested Burtoni for the murders. However, the killer was revealed to be Lolo Purs herself. After intervention by Divo and Amidala, Purs was taken into custody. Purs' reasons for the murder confirmed Divo's original theory: that the Senator had been killed due to his past.
