"The Jem'Hadar wanted us to escape, didn't they? That was the plan all along... for us to bring you back here, so that you could spy on the Federation."
"Well done, Commander."
– Benjamin Sisko and Eris, 2370 ("The Jem'Hadar")

Eris was a Vorta agent in service of the Dominion. She was involved in an attempt to infiltrate the Federation in late 2370. She was the only Vorta known to apparently possess telekinetic abilities. She claimed she was from Kurill Prime.

While Benjamin Sisko and Quark were on a camping trip in the Gamma Quadrant with Jake Sisko and Nog, Eris appeared at the campsite posing as a refugee from the Dominion. She claimed she was a Kurillian who was on a freighter heading home when their homeworld was conquered by the Dominion. The freighter fled from the Dominion; however, the Dominion pursued the ship as it was carrying Eris. Eris' mother was an outspoken opponent of the Dominion, and, in the opinion of Eris, the Dominion wanted to make an example of the family by the capture of a family member. The three of them were then captured by the Jem'Hadar, allowing Eris to gain Sisko's trust. Eris was apparently fitted with a telekinetic suppression collar, and she helped them escape after Quark unlocked the device.

However, Quark later discovered that the collar was nothing more than a complex locking mechanism, while attempting to strip it and sell the plans for profit, and that Eris could have helped them at any time. Her true mission exposed, Eris escaped from Deep Space 9 via a transporter. (DS9: "The Jem'Hadar")

In Borath's mental simulation, Sisko mentioned he had met Eris. (DS9: "The Search, Part II")

Eris was played by Molly Hagan.
The producers intended to bring back Eris in "The Search, Part II" and "The Ship", but the actress was unavailable both times. (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Companion)
In the novelization of "The Search", it is Eris and not Borath who is running the mental simulation from "The Search, Part II".
In "The Search, Part II", Sisko asked Borath, "And you're one of the founders?" to which Borath replies, "that is correct. You seem surprised." Sisko implies that he did not ever formerly suspect that Eris was one of the Founders. However in a prior episode (DS9: "The Jem'Hadar") he asks Eris, "you're one of the founders, aren't you?" As such Sisko is hiding from Borath some of his former insight.
