Jerris is located on the western edge of Barsaive, between the Poison Forest and the Liaj Jungle. This city is almost continually beset by rains of ash blown in from the Wastes, and as a result the city has a dirty, depressing feel. Even when the sun manages to break through the clouds, it does little to warm the hearts and souls of those who make their living here. Despite the eerie environment, Jerris is a significant merchant power, and home to one of the largest airship construction facilities in Barsaive.
The city sent a token force in support of Throal's attack on Sky Point, but otherwise did their best to remain neutral in the war. Iopas took advantage of a weakened Throal after the war and took control of hte city. Byth Vesten is still magistrate, but is now little more than a Denairastas puppet.
