Former President of Operations and Head of Security of the Montecito Resort & Casino, and also a former member of the Board of Directors. Deline was, at one point, one of the main characters of the series, portrayed as a loving husband and father, as well as a father figure to his employees, especially Danny. Nevertheless, he is a tough man and doesn't hesitate to use violence to get what he wants. As the former Director of Counter Intelligence for the CIA, his past has come back to haunt him on several occasions, most recently during his daughter's wedding in "Father of the Bride Redux." During season 3, Ed was briefly in retirement until the Maloofs tried to hire him for their potential casino in Macau. Eventually Ed returned to his position when Casey Manning bought the casino. Ed left the casino after becoming wanted by the Las Vegas police for killing Mary Connell's father and has since gone into hiding. Ed went back to work for the CIA and is currently in Paris, France. Ed's last appearance was the season premiere of Las Vegas season five.
