"As though invisible strings were tied to Snape's wrists, neck and knees he was pulled into a standing position, head lolling unpleasantly, like a grotesque puppet. He hung a few inches above the ground, his limp feet dangling."
Remus Lupin's use on fellow Professor Severus Snape[src]

Mobilicorpus is a spell which is used to move the bodies of those who find themselves unable to walk, regardless of whether or not they are conscious.[2]

Practitioners

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.
  • This spell bears similarities (including the etymology and effects) of the Levicorpus Jinx.
