In general the piece that moves similar to another piece on the subset of squares of a certain shade, rotated by 45 degrees, is called the 'conjugate' of the latter. By defenition such conjugates are thus always color bound.

The conjugate of the Wazir is the Ferz, that of the Ferz the Dababba. That of the Dababba the Alfil, and that of the Knight the Camel. The conjugate of a piece that is already color bound suffers an even higher order of (meta-)color binding.
