Kelly Severide is the Lieutenant in charge of Rescue Squad 3. Severide is known as a "ladies man" as nearly every female he seems to encounter suddenly becomes attracted to him, often leading to them going back to his.


Kelly is dedicated to his position in Rescue Squad and he is proud to be there, he is specially happy that he did not need the help of his father to get where he is today. Benny Severide (Kelly's Father) was a member of Rescue Squad 4, with Wallace Boden and Henry Mills.
