- "I believe you are friends and folk worthy of honour, who have no evil purpose. You may go in."
- —Háma to Gandalf in The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
Háma greeted Gandalf, Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli when they arrived to speak with King Théoden. He told the company to leave their weapons behind, by order of Grima Wormtongue, before entering the King's hall. He disarmed Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli, but against the King's orders permitted Gandalf to keep his staff with him as a courtesy, though he knew, as he remarked, that "The staff in the hand of a wizard may be more than a prop for age."
Portrayal in adaptations Edit
Peter Jackson's The Two Towers Edit
In the film, Háma was still the doorward of Théoden. He allows Gandalf to pass with his staff as well. He is killed by a Warg-rider scout during Saruman's attack on the retreating Rohirrim, and then devoured by the Warg while the rider fought Gamling before it is killed by Legolas. His body is left behind. His only known family is his son, Haleth, who is made to fight at Helm's Deep. New Zealand actor John Leigh plays Háma. In The Two Towers at the Battle of Helm's Deep, Haleth takes his father's place from the books.
