Crooked Bishop must turn 90 degrees each step. It is a multipath chess piece after my article of that name. To its (0,2) squares CB is two-pathed. To others of its squares, however, it is single-pathed. Ralph Betza's Crooked Bishop is not very effective since it implements variably depending on the squares. There are better ways to define a change of direction of 90 degrees or 45 degrees in a chess piece. Cetina's Sissa(45- or 225-) is superior to Crooked Bishop because it is easier to visualize the destination squares.
