The Ballad of Hamish Beamish is a poem featured in the anthology Halo: Fractures, written by Frank O'Connor. It centers around the origins of the janitor Hamish Beamish, who was featured in Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn.


  • The Ballad is considered canonical, however it was written by Beamish himself. Hence, it is an unreliable source of information, as Beamish's sanity has been called into question.[1]
