"Yerkes had been fairly obstreperous at times, but at least broken in."
―Cordelia Vorkosigan's opinion of leadership of Kareenburg[src]

Yerkes was the Mayor of Kareenburg on Sergyar. He very much did not want to have the capitol moved away from the town despite the danger to the region from a nearby active volcano. He had very little success getting information from Admiral Jole about plans for a second military base on the planet (which he correctly deduced would be placed near the intended future capitol).

Shortly into the tale, Mayor Yerkes lost his re-election bid to new-Mayor Kuznetsov.
