The Murray LionIn A History of Chess, chess historian H. J. R. Murray gives an incorrect description of the movement of the Lion in Chu Shogi. However, this Lion is a rather interesting piece. Author John William Brown of the book Meta Chess named this pieces the Murray Lion, both to honor Murray and to distinguish it from the actual Chu Shogi Lion.
MovementThe Murray Lion may leap to the second orthogonal square or the second diagonal square - with or without capturing. It may also move to any adjacent square - but only to capture.
