Etymology

This incantation comes from the Latin words mobilis (which means "movable") and corpus (a term meaning "body").

Behind the scenes

  • It is probable, given the similar etymologies (they share the word mobilis), that this charm and the Mobiliarbus Spell are variations of the same basic spell, modified for their purposes.
  • It is possible, given the lack of record toward the contrary, that the victim must be unconscious in order for the spell to be performed upon them.
  • This spell bears similarities (including the etymology and effects) of the Levicorpus Jinx.
