Kelly is the commanding lieutenant of Rescue Squad 3. He's been working with what amounts to a broken neck for over a month since Darden's death, and has developed a need for painkillers as a result. He does not want to go on sick leave so he tries to cover it up, disregarding the potential consequences. 


Kelly and Matthew Casey are coworkers and lieutenants at the fire station. They have a rocky relationship and often butt heads, but they have also been shown to come together for the sake of the house in season 1. Now in season 2 they get a long very well they are best friends

Kelly and Leslie Shay are coworkers and roommates. Shay has been supplying Severide, as she is a paramedic, with pain medication to help with his neck injury.  She also wants him to donate sperm for her to conceive a child. It is suspected that there is a slight attraction towards these two. They have great chemistry, and also have the ship name 'Shaveride'.l

Katie Nolan is Kellys Sister. He first saw her with his father and he thinks she is his new girlfrind, but Kellys father tells him that she is his daughter. He meets her and tells Katie that he is her older brother. At first the two talk and Katie thinks Kelly is like their father but she discovers that he is not like him. Kelly asks Katie to cook for Fire House 51 where he works. At first she doesn´t show up, but after he said that he isn`t like Benny she makes food for them.
