Daise is a hard-faced, wide but muscular woman. She is twice as wide as her husband, Wit, and a head taller. Perrin says she is 'like a bull'. She is as tall as most men and wider.
She is married to Wit Congar.
Perrin says she has a mean streak and a temper.
As Rand and Tam al'Thor make their way to the village, she appears at the doorway of her home and shouts at her husband for getting involved in Women's Circle business, namely criticizing how their Wisdom behaved.
Daise doesn't want Tinkers in Emond's Field because she thinks they steal belongings and children. Perrin responds angrily, saying that they aren't going to abandon anyone to the Trollocs. Daise looks abashed.
Daise and other members of the Women's Circle agree that Faile would qualify as being betrothed to Perrin by the customs of the Two Rivers. She, Brandelwyn al'Vere and the rest of the Women's Circle preside over Perrin's wedding to Faile.
Daise and others devise a plan to rescue the children of Emond's Field if the Trollocs break through the defenses. Daise is armed with a long pitchfork. Later, when the Whitecloaks fail to help and the women join the battle lines, she kills a goat-snouted Trolloc through the throat with her makeshift weapon.
Daise, Edelle Gaelin, Elwinn Taron and Milla al'Azar meet with Faile to discuss events in the Two Rivers. Daise thrusts herself forward to take the lead in the group since Perrin's manor is closer to her own village. Daise now addresses Faile as 'my Lady'. They find talking to Faile easier because of the unexpected effect Perrin's Ta'veren ability has on their resolve.
Daise is having dresses and a gown made for Faile by Therille Marza, a Domani seamstress that has settled in Emond's Field. A gown was Daise's idea, though Faile wonders of what use a ballgown will be in the Two Rivers.
