We introduce a four-parameter extended family of distributions related to the wrapped Cauchy distribution on the circle. The proposed family can be derived by altering the settings of a problem in Brownian motion which generates the wrapped Cauchy. The densities of this family have a closed form and can be symmetric or asymmetric depending on the choice of the parameters. Trigonometric moments are available, and they are shown to have a simple form. Further tractable properties of the model are obtained, many by utilising the trigonometric moments. Other topics related to the model, including alternative derivations and Möbius transformation are considered. Discussion of the symmetric submodels is given. Finally, generalisation to a family of distributions on the sphere is briefly made.
