Cavalier and Duke are bent riders two-path, and can reach as close as Knight squares, but not adjacent squares. Of course, as boards enlarge, they can reach any distance. These pieces are over 30 years old, and have similarity to Griffion (aka gryphon, griffin etc.) of 700-year-old Grande Acedrex. Olden Griffion though is only one-path bent rider.
