Shelled beings are quite cute and compact.
If you popped out wearing a shell on your back, you definitely won the design lottery.
If you can fit completely inside your box and hinge it shut, this means you are a “box turtle.”
(It also means there are modern safes that aren’t as secure as you are.)
Here, it can take some time to learn that not everyone has a design like yours.
Take your large shell-less assistant, for example. Not only is nothing about her retractable, but she is missing a shell entirely.
Even weirder, she has whole appendages that look a lot like, well, you.
