When giving the Cancer Fragment to Celeste, she will say the following:

"There was a monster called the Hydra poisoning a spring that was a kingdom's main water supply. When the great hero Heracles heard about this, he set out to rid the land of the beast. Just as Heracles was about to land the finishing blow, the Hydra's friend, a crab, arrived to help it out. But the crab was no match for Heracles, who stepped on it and crushed it instantly. The brave crab, who cared so deeply for its friend, was immortalized in the stars as the constellation, Cancer. If only everyone was so lucky as to have a friend who would come running when they're in a pinch!"
