A nativist  anti-foreigner villain he targets Latino immigrants, and joined Red Barber's to go south

  

Ned Mickle, is unofficially number three in the gang, but seeks leadership.  


He comes from “The Hounds” a nativist  anti-foreigner gang in San Francisco a gang that specifically targeted recently arrived immigrants,  mostly Hispanic Americans particularly Chileans, during the California Gold Rush of 1849. 


They were finally run out of San Francisco after an especially egregious incident where many were killed and that’s when Ned Mickle fled south into Southern California he and others with him continued to cause trouble and joined the Red Barber Gang. 


Like a lot of men in The Hounds, he fought in the Mexican-American War.
