Niles Gilbert is a down-on-his-luck bar owner in town, who is also a passionate member of the Law & Order League. The League will eventually become the Ku Klux Klan, but at this moment in history, they are devoted to protecting Texan Anglos from real and perceived Mexican threats. Niles is unapologetic in his racism, and often takes the law into his own hands to further these views. He comes to Eli's aid when their interests align. But Pete views Niles as a dangerous racist, whose views should never be condoned.
