Ned Umber is, in the television adaptation Game of Thrones, the son of Smalljon Umber and the last head of House Umber. He is presumably named after Eddard Stark, whose nickname was Ned. In the books, it is unknown if the Smalljon has any children.
After the death of his father in the Battle of the Bastards, Ned Umber inherits the Last Hearth.
Game of Thrones
Ned is present in Winterfell's great hall during a council, in which the lords are debating the fates of the castles Last Hearth and Karhold. The debate ends when Ned Umber and Alys Karstark are called by Jon Snow, the new King in the North, to swear allegiance to him and House Stark. He is also present when the king announces his plans to forge an alliance with Daenerys Targaryen.
Ned is at Winterfell when Jon Snow returns to the north with Daenerys Targaryen. In the great hall, Sansa Stark orders Lord Umber to return to the Last Hearth to gather his forces, in order to strengthen the army of the living against the white walkers. He requests more horses and wagons to speed up the process, and leaves once his request is granted.
At the Last Hearth, a party of wildlings, black brothers, and brotherhood members find Ned impaled on a wall in the great hall, in the center of a strange spiral symbol made of human limbs, presumably having been killed by the Night King himself. Ned, reanimated as a wight, opens his eyes and lets out an inhuman scream before attempting to stab Tormund. Beric Dondarrion stabs him with his flaming sword, putting Lord Umber's body to rest.
