Dalresin Damodred was a scholar and father of Anvaere, Innloine and Moiraine Damodred. It's implied, though not confirmed, that he was the father of Taringail Damodred, since Taringail is referred to as Moiraine's half-brother.
Dalresin was held in contempt by his ambitious relatives. He died when Moiraine was training in the White Tower. During Moiraine's test to become Aes Sedai, Elaida challenges and taunts her with an image of Dalresin begging for help.
