"We're farther north than any of you fuckers."
―Smalljon Umber to Ramsay Bolton and Harald Karstark
House Umber of the Last Hearth is a vassal house that holds fealty to House Stark of Winterfell, and briefly did for House Bolton of the Dreadfort. Their lands are in the far north of the Stark territories, just south of the Wall and the lands held by the Night's Watch. Their stronghold is a castle called Last Hearth and the head of the house is the Lord of Last Hearth.
House Umber's sigil is four chains linked by a central ring on a dark red field. Their motto is not known at present.
House Umber rallies behind House Stark in the War of the Five Kings, with Greatjon Umber being the first to suggest crowning Robb Stark King in the North and knelt before him.
Bran Stark sends his brother Rickon, Osha, and Shaggydog to seek shelter at the Last Hearth because the Umbers are loyal bannermen of the Starks.
Although refusing to pledge fealty to House Bolton, Smalljon Umber asks Ramsay Bolton to join forces with him to fight the Free Folk that have been let into the realm by Jon Snow, who pose a threat to the Umbers given Last Hearth's proximity to the Wall. To seal their alliance, Smalljon hands over Rickon and Osha as captives he had betrayed to Ramsay and presents the head of Shaggydog as proof of his master's identity. Smalljon also claims that his father Greatjon is dead.
When news of Smalljon's betrayal reaches Jon Snow and Sansa Stark at Castle Black, the latter declares that the Umbers "can hang."
Melessa Tarly tells Gilly that she and Randyll Tarly met a Lord Umber from Last Hearth who taught his daughters how to hunt.
Smalljon Umber is killed by Tormund during the Battle of the Bastards, leaving the current lord of Last Hearth uncertain.
Ned Umber, Smalljon's young son, became the Lord of Last Hearth after the Smalljon's death during the Battle of the Bastards. Ned is present during a meeting of the Northern Lords at Winterfell where he reaffirms his house's loyalty to House Stark.
