- He is the highest ranking member of the Brotherhood's air force division. Although there are lancer-captains that appear in the game, Kells ranks above them as captain of the Prydwen. It is possible that his title of 'Lancer Captain' without the hyphen is meant to distinguish him as the commander of the lancers and the ship.
- If you fight the BoS alongside the Institute, he does not make an appearance.
- If you are allied with the BoS, you can inform him about the presence of synths in Acadia with the add-on Far Harbor.

- Xbox One If you talk to Kells while he is standing in front of the machinery, one of the nearby lancer-knights may walk into him. When this happens, there is a chance that Kells will levitate toward the ceiling.[verification overdue]
- If you talk to Kells he will only repeat his a few lines about how he maintains the ship, along with other generic responses making it impossible to complete lost patrol as well as impossible to start his own missions. The only known solution is to reload an earlier save file.[platforms tag needed][verification overdue]
