Big, slow Ham is the fishing partner of Siriol. Both are Free Holanders, and near the beginning of Drowned Ammet, are suspected by Mitt of betraying his father and Canden during the mission to burn one of the Earl's warehouses. Mitt persuades him to take Hobin out onto the marshes on the day of the Sea Festival, so that Hobin won't be suspected of the crime Mitt plans to commit that day. Ham's name is one of many shortened forms of Alhammitt.
