|Era|| Second Interval|
|Parent(s)|| Tenniz |
|First appearance||Dragon's Time|
Jeriz was the son of Tenniz, but did not inherit his 'Sight', which went to his sister Jirana. After Fiona discovered that he was staying with Shaneese at Telgar Weyr - because "His mother’s got her hands full with the daughter; the boy’s got a strangeness to him, but not the Sight” - he became Fiona's helper. He then went with her and the weyrlings back in time to Eastern Weyr.
When the combined clutches of the queens and greens began to hatch at Eastern Weyr, they were attacked by tunnel snakes and many of the eggs were destroyed. Jeriz helped one of the eggs that had been partially eaten by tunnel snakes, rescuing the hatchling inside and Impressing green Qinth. It turned out the tunnel snakes had already started to gnaw on Qinth and she was badly injured, with many doubting that she would even survive. She did eventually recover at Sky Weyr and was the only green dragon to survive the Hatching.
Personality and traits
J'riz was described as an attractive boy, with swarthy «trader» skin, unruly long black hair, and brilliant green eyes. He was considered a handful by Shaneese and took a while to warm up to people.
