Dirac structures are characterized in terms of their characteristic pairs defined in this note and then Poisson reductions are discussed from the point of view of Dirac structures.

The purpose of this paper is to establish a connection between various objects such as dynamical $r$-matrices, Lie bialgebroids, and Lagrangian subalgebras. Our method relies on the theory of Dirac structures and Courant algebroids. In particular, we give a new method of classifying dynamical $r$-matrices of simple Lie algebras $\U0001d524$, and prove that dynamical $r$-matrices are in one-one correspondence with certain Lagrangian subalgebras of $\U0001d524\oplus \U0001d524$.
