Háma was the doorward of the Meduseld (King Théoden's palace) and captain of Théoden's guard in The Two Towers. He greeted Gandalf, AragornLegolas and Gimli when they arrived to speak with 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."[1]

After the evacuation of Edoras, on the way to Helm's deep the evacuees were ambushed by the Wolves of Isengard . One Orc rider managed to overthrow Háma knocking him off his horse.  He is then devoured by the warg while the rider fought Gamling .

In the book though Háma was present at the Battle of the Hornburg, and died defending the gates of Helm's Deep. He was buried at Helm's Deep after the battle.

In The Two Towers at the Battle of Helm's Deep Peter Jackson instead added his son Haleth.

Portrayal in adaptationsEdit

On radioEdit

In the film, Háma is still the doorward of Théoden. He allows Gandalf to pass with his staff as well. He is killed when a Warg-rider scout attacks and devours his head on the way to Helm's Deep, 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.
