Igmund is the Nordic Jarl of The Reach. He resides in Understone Keep. He strongly supports the Empire and peace with the Thalmor. From Igmund, it is learned that the Markarth Incident started the Stormcloak rebellion. He severed his ties with Ulfric Stormcloak after the Third Aldmeri Dominion threatened the Reach with war.
When compared with other Jarls, Igmund is the least worried Jarl about the dragons, because Markarth is made entirely out of stone, due to being built into the side of the mountain.
Jarl Igmund asks for the retrieval of his father's long lost shield.
If the Stormcloaks are sided with during the Civil War, Igmund will be replaced by Thongvor Silver-Blood as Jarl of Markarth. Igmund can then be found in the basement of the Blue Palace in Solitude, along with the other replaced Jarls, stewards and housecarls.
If the Empire is sided with after the quest Season Unending, Igmund will regain his throne as Jarl of Markarth. Thongvor Silver-Blood and his steward will be moved to the Palace of the Kings in Windhelm along with the other replaced Jarls, Stewards, and Housecarls.
After retrieving his father's shield, helping five citizens, and killing groups of Forsworn around the Reach, Igmund will grant the Dragonborn permission to purchase Vlindrel Hall, along with the Blade of the Reach and the title of Thane.

Raerek "Igmund, we need to talk about the Silver-Blood family."
Igmund "What about them? They seem loyal enough."
Raerek "Loyal? Thongvor supports Ulfric and his Stormcloaks! We should imprison the entire family as a precaution."
Faleen "I second that, Igmund. Who knows what that family will do for power? They could be working with the Forsworn for all we know."
Igmund "Enough! We can't imprison the very people who own the jail we would be throwing them into. The Silver-Bloods are to be left alone, am I clear?"
Raerek "Yes, my Jarl."
Faleen "Yes, my Jarl."
Raerek "My Jarl, we need to discuss Markarth's collapsing trade with the other Holds."
Igmund "Of course there's a collapse in trade. The Stormcloaks stalk every road and the Forsworn attack every caravan."
Faleen "No to mention the rebels completely control Windhelm and all of Eastmarch hold."
Igmund "Why do you pester me with battles we can't win? I need my steward to plan for victory, not nag me with every ill account."
Raerek "Forgive me for worrying about the furture of Markarth. The lifeblood of the city is gold, Igmund, and it doesn't stop beating because there's a war on."
Igmund "Very well. I'll send the request for additional Legionaries to protect trade to the other Imperial holds. Hopefully, Solitude can spare more men."
- Raerek, his steward, is also his uncle.
- Inside the Jarl's quarters, there will be a plate with Dog Meat on it, suggesting the Jarl eats his own dogs.
- Igmund is voiced by Paul Ganus.
