Brigadier General Theodore Marley Brooks, known as Ham is part of Doc Savage's crew, The Fabulous Five. He frequently Argues with and picks on Monk, another one of the crew.
"Slender, waspy, quick-moving, Ham looked what he was-a quick thinker and possibly the most astute lawyer Harvard ever turned out. He carried a plain black cane-never went anywhere without it. This was, among other things, a sword cane."
