'ABCLargeCV': Weak back rank means likely promotion to Queen or Gnu(Knight+Camel). Alternative win condition is checkmate of any Gnu. In Doug Chatham's Bachelor Chess there is win by marriage(K,Q adjacent), for which see Gilman's Notes. For all the play on words, Camel, or really any other variant leaper uncompounded, be it Zebra, Dabbabah, Alfil, Trebuchet(0,3), or Tripper(3,3), just do not carry the logic or effectiveness of Knight. Therefore, Alfil is not standard any more; and any CV that uses one of those six exotic leapers quickly scrambles for rules and array to make a playable chess.
