Thus there are prefixes not among the 150 listed suffixes. One is Nervous in M&B16 and another is She.  'She-' is the indicator a doubly-bent rider has Rook option, and -Hound the double-bend rider has Bishop option. Those couple dozen specialized prefixes around also just convenience a piece-type name within a single word.  That SheWolf is Stiles' Wolf plus Rook. 
A regular suffix -Blinker leads to the sentence in M&B16: ''Thus a Nightblinker is a Nightranker capturing as a Nightfiler.'' What does that mean?
