Surprisingly this 4,4 leaper seems to be the only piece that has a unique square to move to from any square on the 8×8 board! Good find. The generalised extension is for mathematicians only !

on one hand too much mechanical
on the other hand nice, light, and rather easy to understand
The tries give the minimum of “chess perfume” that is needed : the queen must stick to the black pieces in order not to be intercepted

This comes to underline that the (4,4)leaper has a special quality : anywhere on the board it can play to one square and to one square only.
