The name of the Hopping Zombie Spell is a reference to Jiāng shī, except where the character for stiff (僵), is replaced with the character for jump (跳). In Chinese legends and folklore, the Jjiāng shī is a type of reanimated corpse. According to legend, in the day, the Jjiāng shī rests in a coffin or hides in dark places such as caves. At night, it moves around by hopping, with its arms outstretched. It kills living creatures to absorb their life essence.
The 4th generation head of the Rosenthal Family, Isaac, came across the Hopping Zombie spell in the East and combined it with his family's Necromancy, forming what would become the Rosenthal style.
