Jani (or "kylä Jani") is the driver of Ricochet, the yellow car outside of Teimo's Shop in Peräjärvi. When approaching him, he will threaten the player and try to annoy him. After some time he will start the car and begin driving across the town. If the player saves at Teimo's Shop, he can be seen drifting into the front area of the store, hitting the player's car if parked near where he parks.
Jani looks to be in his mid 20s/30s, wearing a hat with the Finnish flag and text that says "Kurjala" which is parody of a Finnish beer brand Karjala. He wears a black shirt with the yellow text reading "Väkivalta Lopettaa Vittuilun" which freely translates to "Violence stops people fucking with you" It is also the title of a metal/punk rock song of the same name by a Finnish band named Pistosaha, which might be a reference to one of the developer's favourite songs, hence the fact that a lot of metal and rock music is played on the in-game radio.
He will threaten the player, but won't actually respond or fight the player like he says in his threats. He can punch the player and knock them out only if the player gets close enough to the driver and gives him the finger. If knocked out, the player will either wake up in the shower room of their house, or on the bench at the bus station in front of the shop. Even if the player does not respond to him in any way, the driver will still drive into the player's Satsuma, trying to rile up the player.
