The reason why I named the rook + knight piece in Schoolbook a 'Marshall' instead of a 'Chancellor' is because the Archbishop is sometimes called a 'Cardinal' and I wanted the first letter of the name for the rook + knight piece to be an unambiguous one. 'C', IMHO, is for the Camel (1,3 colorbound knight).
