Triton(TR): Marine piece operating along Rook lines: without capture moves as Rook, with capture – as Locust.

Nereid (ND): Marine piece operating along Bishop lines: without capture moves as Bishop, with capture – as Locust.

Locust(L): Moves along Queen lines only by capturing an enemy unit, arriving on the square immediately beyond that unit, which must be vacant.

Marine Knight(MS): Moves as Knight provided destination is vacant, captures an enemy on (1,2) by a leap to (2,4) – which again must be vacant.

Face to Face: When a white piece is just one rank below a black piece on the same file, they exchange their walk.
