the king is the biggest and most precious of the pieces, often compared to a worn father figure; his importance is great but his strength is limited.  the bishops sit at the king’s right hand and the queen’s left hand, often moving as the queen does as protection and support.  the knights are the most unorthodox pieces; their range of movement initially appears limited, but their unique way of crossing the board often gives them an advantage.  the rooks are the fortifiers, represented most often as castles.  in them is strength and endurance.  the queen is the most powerful, and most versatile, figure on the board.  the queen can move in any pattern except the knight’s, and if the queen is lost, the game is often lost also.
