Although Tir Chonaill is a relatively small town, the town school offers comprehensive education in combat and magic. Students wishing to learn magic are in good hands with Lassar as their magic instructor. A child prodigy in magic, she left Tir Chonaill to train in magic abroad at Emain Macha. She brought her training back with her to Tir Chonaill for students wishing to learn the magical arts at the town school. She maintains a childhood friendship with Dilys, the town healer, and they are often seen quarelling like little children. While she can be cold and intimidating at first, she is actually a very patient and thorough teacher with a detailed knowledge of magic.
