Mind you, Caelan, hardly, ever shows emotions.

See example:

Think about how you would say it out loud. Commas are usually used to mirror prosody in spoken language. If you were talking about someone, for example, you might say, "Mind you, Caelan hardly ever shows emotions.". If you were talking to Caelan, you might may,"Mind you, Caelan, (someone) hardly ever shows emotions." You would actually have to put another person in the discourse though. Wikipedia has a pretty nice explanation of this, if you're interested: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intonation_%28linguistics%29
