this looks interesting with crooked bishops replacing the monstrous cavaliers.However the crooked bishop's move is not related to any sort of mideastern piece, the cavalier was related to the well known gryphon. Maybe you could add renn cavaliers instead of the mideast cavaliers and guards a fusion of the ferz and wazir or maybe replace the queen with the mideast cavalier or as ed friedlander calls it the godzilla and and replace the godzillas that flank the king and queen with queens. maybe this variant i propose could face hawaiian chess
