Thraex is the Bishop counterpart to the Gaul. That is, Thraex captures as a Rook and moves by the screen-jump one-square-beyond method continuing on one of the two 45-degree-deviated diagonal legs. Hence Bishop: Thraex is basically bifurcated into Bishop to move once having found his appropriate legal track(s).
