This is one of the few uses of Stiles' Fox and Wolf.  Back in 2006 Charles Gilman self-critiqued that the two are in Piececlopedia or Man & Beast or both yet not in a CV.  So Gilman put them into this CV as subvariant.  Of course I am hoping we can agree on Were Queen in a Chess Different Army being compound of the major components of the same two Wolf and Fox.  

In the old days before Internet problem composers, including T.R. Dawson  of early 20th C. were content to describe and utilize a piece type and not surround it with a particular-authored rules-set, aruguably confusing the genius of invention.
