The King; the ultimate goal— but can’t do the work itself. Need the strength of others to keep standing.
The Knight; the irrational piece, it moves by leaps of intuition, choosing a route entirely unique to himself, hardest to predict.
The Bishop; the piece that is held back by only being able to move on its own color - it can surprise you.
The Rook; who guards the king, the watcher and protector.
The Queen; the most powerful piece. Has full freedom of movement in any direction and is the most valuable. She moves in any way she pleases to win the game.
The Pawn; the least powerful piece on the chess board, but has the potential to become equal to the most powerful - with the right move.
