Yet we see in tPotD that she is sufficiently confident of her status
as a Lavode to call herself that explicitly.  And yet Sethra in
_Issola_ says that there are no more Lavodes, currently. 

I tend to find more agreeable the notion, previously put forth here,
that Tazendra's soul is currently bound up in Blackwand.  This would
allow Morrolan to have made the statements he did in "Taltos" (about
defending Zerika against bandits above Deathgate Falls) without being
a complete liar.
