I was thinking about the FDmsW to be a nice candidate. You don't really feature orthogonal attacks, the piece is not color bound, not too strong , not too weak. I have also considered the weird AH, which is not color bound but which moves around quite akward.

Also why force one bonus piece? There could be a choice here too. I think because things could become too complicated. But the player can then choose winning pairs.
