- "I believe you are friends and folk worthy of honour, who have no evil purpose. You may go in."
- —Háma to Gandalf in 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
Peter Jackson's The Two Towers
In the film, Háma was still the doorward of Théoden. He allows Gandalf to pass with his staff as well. He is later killed by a Warg-rider scout during Saruman's attack on the retreating Rohirrim, and then devoured by the Warg while its rider fights Gamling and is killed by Legolas. Háma's body is left behind. His only known relation is his son, Haleth (a non-canon character), who is one of the many youth made to protect Helm's Deep.
