Dyrele is an Aiel woman of the Shaido Aiel. She is married to Maeric, the sept chief of the Moshaine Shaido. Her eldest son is Darin, a Stone Dog, and her eldest daughter is Suraile, a Maiden of the Spear. Dyrele herself was a Maiden before she made a bridal wreath to lie at Maeric's feet. Maeric remembers how she threatened to cut his throat if he did not pick it up.

She has green eyes. Maeric thinks to himself that Dyrele always sees straight to the point. She is always very reserved in public.

When the Moshaine Shaido are separated from the rest of the Shaido by going through one of Sammael's gateways, they are surrounded by enemy Aiel and wetlanders. Maeric tells Dyrele that she must prepare to put on white, since there is no way the Moshaine Shaido can hold off so many enemies. He tells her that she must live, to hold together what remains once he is dead. She nods and presses her fingers against his cheek before he leads his warriors into battle.
