Laurus Jade (ラウルス・ジェイド Raurusu Jeido) is one of the supporting characters in Our Commitment.
He is an actor and is the older and only brother of Blue Jade, a musician. He resides in a luxurious suburban mansion with Hairia and their butler.
Laurus is extremely sensitive to cold, thus he usually wears a scarf with stripes during fall or winter.
Laurus's concept outfit consists of a white long sleeved shirt with a blue ribbon on the center of his chest, white leggings, and white boots.
Laurus can be selfish, but he's gentle and sweet when he needs to be. Despite being older, he is someone more childish than his younger brother. He is an idealistic person and a voice of reason.
He always moves with grace, and acts in front of the cameras with confidence. He is a former teacher in France, once being a professieur in Violette's class.
Laurus liked seeing her younger brother pleased. He was especially happy back when Blue was little and was usually around Viridi. Knowing about the latter's sickness disappointed him and his baby brother, although Laurus stayed optimistic every time he gets to see her.
Both Blue and Laurus used to argue a lot back when he used to be a teacher, since his brother was going through a phase. Laurus understands this but is affected by means of his yelling.
Laurus is first introduced after Bellatrix's arrival. The latter is first upset for not giving Hairia normal meals and letting their cook do the work.
He offers to give everyone a ride to Brest via his yacht, where everyone is taking a break and spending their time on the water.
In the ending, Laurus stops in front the gates of his mansion, predicting Hairia's misfortune. The latter is currently running late for their work and is seen running downstairs. As Hairia jumps inside the limousine, the chauffeur hands her a lunchbox, coming from Bellatrix.
Laurus appears in a crossover comic named Our Commitment × Portuland, with Hairia accompanying her throughout the pages.
Laurus appears in Our Commitment: Rotten, a spin-off revolving around Violette's childhood.
Laurus appears in Our Commitment: It Doesn't End Yet, a comedic spin-off that tells the story of the creators' mishaps as they make the comic. There are also extra scenes that aren't shown in the comic.
Laurus's scene: As Laurus makes his way into the scene, he immediately acts as if Violette pushed her. The latter nervously denies this, but to everyone's dismay. All of the people surround her until Hairia appears on the rescue. Violette mentions her name and someone yells "Cut" from behind the crowd. The director tells her to yell the name "Anouska," not "Hairia" as it turns out that they were all doing it for a scene.
