The corrupt sheriff of Atlantic County and Nucky's younger brother. Through the first two seasons he develops an increasing desire for recognition which he feels denied because everyone else only sees him as Nucky's muscle, and that eventually leads him to betray Nucky for the Commodore. This conspiracy is defeated, and Eli loses his sheriff position and goes to jail for a year and a half in payment for his betrayal. Played by Shea Whigham (and Oakes Fegley as a child and Ryan Dinning as a young man).

He's also, quite oddly, completely absent from the series finale.
