BRNQFFKNRB(Joyce array) protects all pawns and was previously named Horus 3.October.2004 here, but since that was already a CV of Aronson, Joyce array it is now renamed. Also because ''Horus'' is then freed up to be synonymous with Falcon for the piece, sort of like Horse and Knight. We can have four fundamentals intuitively obvious as soundalikes Horus and Horse, Rook and Fool(out of French). Others include RBFNK(Templars), FBRNK(Pyramids), FRNBK(Cheops), RNBKF Osiris, RFNBK(Sibahi).
