Zhain Howsmyn was a Charisian citizen and the wife of Ehdwyrd Howsmyn.

She was the daughter of an earl, and had no problem being married to a commoner, especially since her husband was one of the richest men in the country. She had a much more developed sense of the social dynamics of Tellesberg and the Kingdom than Howsmyn, whom she loved deeply. She refused to let him retreat into social hermitage, and saw to it that he faced his social obligations. (BSRA)
