The Hero and his Dog crashed in the Southern Jungle after being sent down from Omnitopia. The hero questioned if the Dog was his due to its unfamiliar appearance, and had it fetch a stick to see. The dog returned with an old femur, and the hero accepted this and set out to explore the area. The two fought their way through the jungle to the north, finding Fire Eyes' Village.
Later in the game, with the Spider's Claw, the hero could return to the jungle and chop down the plants barring his path in order to visit Strong Heart in his hut, where he gave the hero the Cure formula. After acquiring the Windwalker from Tinker, a return visit to Strong Heart resulted in them learning Miracle Cure.
