Kangaroo-Lion-3(KL3): Moves along Q-lines over 3 hurdles of either color (which may or may not stand on adjacent squares) to any square beyond the 3rd unit. A capture may be made on arrival, but the hurdle is not affected.

PAO(PA): Chinese piece operating along Rook lines: moves as Rook, but captures only by hopping over a hurdle to any square beyond.

    Two picture-perfect quadruple pin mates with ODT!
    Three pairs of function exchange between WR/WB, WQ/WR and the two W Paos.
    In each solution, the inactive pin line is used the the K3 to reach its intermediate square. This also avoids duals by the interchange of W1/W2 moves.
    The two W Paos only seem to be doing Rook duty. So, they could possibly be replaced with Rs?

    Great conception! Loved the reversed play of Kangaroo!
