Joe Cruz

Cruz has a tough persona that tends to throw people off sometimes, but underneath the rough exterior, he is a selfless guy who would willingly give his life for his fellow firefighters, but fans would prefer if he puts himself first once in a while.

Otis is that guy fans hate-to-love, and it applies to his crew too. He is as annoying as he is lovable and loyal to a fault. One of Otis's endearing qualities is his shyness around women, and it broke his heart and that of fans when a gunshot wound relegated him to desk duty.

Sylvie Brett

Brett is a small-town girl who moved to the city with big dreams, and so far, she has achieved them. Fans didn't love her at first, but once they did, Brett became a favorite, and even her disastrous love-life got fixed.

Stella Kidd

Kidd is another character that took the fans a while to love, especially because she is one of the women Severide used to date. However, because her role brought a little mystery to the show, everyone soon forgot why they didn't like her in the first place.

Matthew Casey

Matt's tragic storyline endeared him to viewers, and the fact that he keeps rising from the ashes gave him more points, and all fans want is for Matt to catch a break and be happy.

Wallace Boden

Fans can't help but love the head of House 51. Boden is tough, fierce, loyal, and above all, he would walk through the fire for his crew, while reminding them that they are a family.
