Háma was the second son of Helm Hammerhand.

History[edit]

When the Dunlendings invaded Rohan in T.A. 2758, Háma took refuge in Helm's Deep with his father. During the Long Winter Helm was besieged, the Rohirrim's food ran low, and the people began to starve. After Yule, Háma led a group out of the fortress on a sortie to find food, but they got lost in a snow storm and never returned.[1]

Etymology[edit]

Háma in Old English means "of home".
