Well, that'd be an idea... How about this: Lion, amazon, combound of lion and queen?

Very interesting, but you probably again wrong with promotion sequence: on 12x12 board lion is stronger than queen. I'm not sure, is lion stronger or weaker than amazone on this board (on smaller board, it's most probably stronger). How about this: player starts with queen rather than lion, it promotes to lion, lion promotes to amazone (or, maybe, to compound of queen and lion, called budhist spirit in shogi variants. Probably, it's not necessary, amazone is probably actually stronger than lion and promotion to amazone is more interesting if it's stronger).
