This is a popular variant, known from the 1940's.
A wolf combines the moves of rook and knight.
A fox (shown here as a pegasus) combines the moves of bishop and knight.
A sergeant moves and captures one square forward (straight or diagonally).
A rider moves as a knight, and can keep moving on the same turn in the same direction until it is blocked by a unit of its own color, or captures.
Any pawn or sergeant is entitled to make its first move as two squares forward.
A pawn can capture a pawn or sergeant en passant. A sergeant cannot capture en passant.
A pawn promotes to an elephant, which combines the moves of queen and rider.
A sergeant promotes to a queen. In the original rules, one could choose (sergeants not being allowed to promote to elephant). I simplified by making the promotion choice automatic.
There is no castling.
Otherwise the rules are as in standard chess.
These are simple illustrations rather than strong opponents.
