Chicago Fire's Main Characters Ranked Worst To Best


After Matt Casey’s departure, Kelly Severide has arguably become the main character of “Chicago Fire,” and his presence is one of its most important. Taylor Kinney is infinitely charming and charismatic in the role. Despite having a rocky relationship with Casey in the first season, based on the blame over the death of a mutual friend and colleague, the two grow to be the best of friends, and their friendship becomes one of the cornerstones of the cast’s dynamics.

While Severide is a very likable character, he also has his negative qualities as well. For instance, in Season 1, he manipulates his roommate and close friend, Leslie Shay (Lauren German), to use her position as a paramedic to sneak him drugs that he isn’t authorized to take because of his addiction. In addition, when his girlfriend (and future wife) Stella Kidd is trying to pass her lieutenant’s exam, Severide avoids her for several days to try to make it seem like he isn’t the reason she got into the program. Instead of communicating this, he is short with her and refuses to talk.
