No.415 by Pierre Tritten – Excellent activity of the white King and Queen! (JV)
Anti-Circe Clone: A capturing piece (including King) takes the nature of the captured piece and then goes to its Circe rebirth square. The checking/mating piece do not take the nature of the King and its returning square is according its own nature.
Circe: Captured units (not Ks) reappear on their game-array squares, of the same color in the case of pieces, on the file of capture in the case of pawns, and on the promotion square of the file of capture in the case of fairy pieces. If the rebirth square is occupied the capture is normal.
