Gaul is inverse Crossrook. That is, Crossrook moves as a Bishop and captures once at the diagonal jump location over the screen, or else at a square on orthogonal continuation of it along one of the two second legs. Whereas, Gaul captures only as a Bishop and without capture must move by one-piece one-square jump along Bishop radial and continuation 45-degree-deviated orthogonally any distance. Both Crossrook and Gaul are divergent piece-type and bifurcating piece-type.
