Dírhael was a stern man who found it hard to show his emotions. When Dírhael and Ivorwen lived in the north before Gilraen was born, he and Arador had been close friends and he watched over Arathorn's early years. As a protective father he was resistant to the relationship that started to grow between his daughter and Arathorn. His foresight also told him there was trouble ahead.
