Jerivet is an elderly Hilurin man from Scarlet's village of Lysia. He works as a potter and regularly plies his wares between Khurelen and Tradepoint. When Scarlet tries to sneak past the Kasiri encampment on the Nerit for the second time, it is Jerivet's wagon he hides in, among the plates and bowls packed with straw.

When Liall discovers Scarlet in the wagon and refuses to let him pass, Jerivet says that he cannot leave the son of a friend alone in dangerous company. Liall assures Jerivet that Scarlet will come to no harm.
