"A garif village in Bancour. Here, a chieftain elder watches of the old ways, and so administers the tribe. Though many other villages dot the area, there is little direct communication between them. The garif have worshiped magicite since ancient times, and tribal legends tend much wisdom concerning the Stones. When the time is right, the elders teach these lesson to the youth of the village, and, on rare occasion, to visitors from other lands. Abhorring machinery and iron, much of the garif material culture is based on wood and stone and other unmanufactured things. Their houses made of grass and strips of leather allow a breeze to pass through, and are uniquely suited to the hot, arid climate. On the hill overlooking the village is a meeting lodge, warmed always by a bonfire. Near the lodge are the elders' huts, and below the hill is a clearing ringed by a healer's hut, and the tents of craftsmen, as well as a place to take care of the livestock, called "nanna" in the garif tongue. Dalmasca has for many years honored the ways of the garif, and so kept up a peaceful trade and relations with this isolated people."

Since the Garif shun technology, the village of Jahara has not changed much over the years.

However, 7 centuries ago, the Occuria, knowing the Garif knew much about magicite and the ways of the world, gave them some nethicite. However, not even the wisest Garif knew how to use the stones, and, as such, the Occuria took the nethicite and gave it to someone much more deserving, King Raithwall, the Dynast King. This is just one of the many stories passed down in Jahara.

It is the home to a tribe of the Garif, who are remote and don't get many visitors, which is how they like it.

Jahara is located in the Bancour region. It is only accessible by going through the Ozmone Plains.
