"Calico Briggs, Deputy Mayor. Manx hasn’t done an ounce of paperwork around here for years! I turned down you parole, bribes and all." - Callie
Callie Briggs (real name Calico “Callie” Briggs) is the Deputy Mayor of Megakat City and is often the one running it while Mayor Manx is teeing off for another round of golf. She is highly independent, and has proved on more than one occasion that she is quite capable of taking care of herself during a crisis. She is a friend to the SWAT Kats, and alerts them of any trouble happening within the city that they should be aware of. The fearless, strong-willed right hand woman to Megakat City’s Mayor Manx, Callie pounces on a any situation that may put her beloved Megakat City in danger. Callie often becomes the troubleshooter who gets sent into dangerous situations so the Mayor need not endanger his own life.
Callie is shown to be sweet-tempered, kind-hearted, and self-reliant. She is also fiercely dedicated to the SWAT Kats and always defends them from Feral's accusations. Further, she has formed a significant bond of love and courage with them and it is implied throughout the series that she harbors romantic feelings for Jake Clawson, aka "Razor". She is also under constant pressure to singlehandedly keep the city running while putting up with Mayor Manx's snooty and amateurish behavior. As a result, she has very little time for herself and often vents her frustrations about her job to any who will listen, often the SWAT Kats. However, she regularly shows the confidence and courage to face any challenge in front of her and despite the mortal peril she often finds herself in, is always determined to turn the situation around.

The Only Bad Quality
- While she is still lovable outside of the episode The Dark Side of the SWAT Kats, her evil counterpart is very unlikable.
- ZekeyX2004 considered her to be his #1 favorite character.
- Callie's role in the series is similar to that of Lois Lane from Superman and an early role of Ms. Sara Bellum from The Powerpuff Girls franchise. While seemingly subordinate, both are much more capable and competent in comparison to their respective political figures, serving as the brains behind their operations. However, Callie is not a sexualized character like Ms. Bellum.
- Bartleby MontClair from Sonic Underground, rips off a few elements of Callie's personality.
