Among the Faith of the Seven, the seven wanderers are considered sacred, and each is equated with a god. The red wanderer, for instance, is sacred to the Smith. The seven wanderers may be other planets in the same solar system as the known world, given that the word "planet" derived from the Greek word πλανῆται (planḗtēs, which means "wanderer" or "wandering star"). On Earth, the seven planets of antiquity included the Sun and Moon.
Comets can also be referred to as wanderers.
