Dírhael was a stern man who found it hard to show his emotions. When Dírhael and Ivorwin lived in Arda before Gilraen was born, he and Kuruk had been close friends and he watched over Gilraen's early years. As a protective father he was resistant to the relationship that started to grow between his daughter and Ulmos. His foresight also told him there was trouble ahead.
Not much else is known, though he is deceased now.
