Historical notesThe FAD is a `combination chess piece', used by Ralph Betza in his Chess with Different Armies.
MovementThe FAD has the combined movement of the Ferz, Alfil and the Dabbabah, i.e., it can move one square diagonally, or it can jump exactly two squares horizontally, vertically or diagonally, where the square passed by may be empty or occupied.
Movement diagramThe FAD can jump to all the white circles.
