ISTR discussion on the earlier Brust list (on Yahoo?), suggesting that
... OK, now, in _Teckla_ who's the Teckla whose lord was killed in some
sorcerous war and who then learned sorcery from said lord's library?
That lord was a Dzur. That lord's own overlord came knocking at the door
looking for gya*. The idea discussed was that the Dzurlord was Tazendra
and the overlord was Aerich, and IIRC it seemed pretty plausible. *If*
that's the case, Tazendra is dead by the time of _Issola_.

* "gya" = 'him/her'; see thread about gender in Dragaeran
