Connelly is a guard at Belle Reve.
He was Clark's escort when he first came to visit Lex and helped control the riot that was sparked off when Lex tried to attack Clark. He later encountered Lex when he was trying to escape and Lex beat him unconscious with a truncheon. Connelly delivered a meteor rock to Van McNulty and accepted a payment from him to keep quiet about it. He encountered a runaway Lex again after Clark had been abducted by Ian Randall. Unwilling to take any chances this time, he rendered him unconscious with an injection before Lex could explain the situation.
