The Mission is a colour bound Rook, with the ability to leap the nearest opposite coloured square. It may also move without leaping, two squares diagonally.
Thus it may move as many squares as there are available in an orthogonal direction, but may only land on those of the same colour it is bound to at the start.
If there are pieces in the way on either coloured square, the Mission’s path is blocked and must land to the nearest same colour square along a clear path, just as if it were a non leaping piece.
Only the nearest opposite coloured square may be jumped. The Mission may not jump diagonally.
The Mission, as I will explain in the following chapters, only leaps because it is a natural trait of it being colour bound. Since it has no natural instruction to leap diagonally, it does not.
