From what Romas said, every household on his planet had at least one or two of the critters to keep things clean.
She held the hand of the man before her, walking on a dead planet of nothing but rocky hills, dried streams, and cracked earth.

His people were decimated, his planet virtually dead.
"On my planet, women do fight," she said.
