Gul Benil (pronounced Beh-neel) was an officer in the Eighth Order in 2371. He commanded a Galor-class ship, which was assigned a patrol route inside Cardassian space when Commander Benjamin Sisko, Odo and Elim Garak attempted to rescue Major Kira from Cardassia.
Sisko initially used a holo-filter to impersonate a Kobheerian, but when Benil announced that he was going to board the USS Defiant, Garak disengaged the filter and issued an Obsidian Order access code, claiming that he was on an Alpha Red priority mission. As the code was accepted, he apologized and went about his business. (DS9: "Second Skin")
