Quotation1 Head of the Holoska clan. He has an absolutely terrible memory: first he'll forget something; then he'll forget what he forgot and get upset; give him another minute, and he'll have already forgotten what was troubling him. Keep this to yourself, but the day he got chewed out by his wife Ursule for forgetting where they had their first date. Did she clip his whiskers good! Quotation2

History

PS3/Xbox 360

At least fifty years prior to Sonic Unleashed, Jari-Pekka was out on the ice floes in Cool Edge in the evening with Ursule. There, Jari-Pekka took Ursule by the hand and proposed to her while promising that he would store away some dried meat on their wedding day, which they would could eat their 50th wedding anniversary. Afterwards, Jari-Pekka married Ursule and, as promised, he stored away some dried jerky in Cool Edge. Later on, he and Ursule had a son named Jari-Thure. At some point during his marriage, Jari-Pekka told Ursule that he had forgotten where they had their first date, which let to him being heavily scolded by his wife.

During the events of Sonic Unleashed, Jari-Pekka became possessed by Dark Gaia's Minions, which gave him an improved memory and a sharper mind at nighttime due to their personality-reversing effects, though he also came to act like a goofball.

At some point after his possession, Jari-Pekka met Sonic the Hedgehog and Chip when they first arrived in Holoska. where he claimed to know Sonic, but then quickly forgot what he was saying and asked Sonic who he was. Later, after nightfall, Jari-Pekka met up with Sonic the Werehog and Chip again. However, due to the influence of Dark Gaia's Minions, Jari-Pekka told Sonic and Chip that he was pleased to meet them and about how his mind had been better during nightfall lately.

Jari-Pekka continued to have this behavior for some time, shifting between his moods between day and night. Whenever he met Sonic and Chip during the day in this period, Jari-Pekka would try to remember Sonic's name, only for then to have Sonic tell him, where he would remark that it was a fast-sounding name, but would then quickly forget it. Whenever he met Sonic and Chip during the night in this period, however, Jari-Pekka would rebuke Sonic's claims that he was forgetful and claim that he was physically and mentally fit. Eventually, Jari-Pekka was freed from Dark Gaia's Minions when Sonic the Werehog and Chip exorcised him. As he recovered, Jari-Pekka told Sonic and Chip how he felt his body refreshed and his mind sharp, but then forgot what they were talking about.

Sometime after his exorcism, Jari-Pekka met Sonic and Chip once more, where he tried to remember Sonic's name before eventually saying that it was "James", but was disappointed to hear that he was wrong. Brushing his flawed claim off, Jari-Pekka wanted to hear which region of Earth that Sonic and Chip had restored recently. Hearing it was Chun-nan, Jari-Pekka praised Sonic for the effort, though he ended up calling Sonic "James" again.

Sometime afterwards, Jari-Pekka encountered Sonic and Chip again, where he called Sonic "Tonic". After being corrected, Jari-Pekka apologized and asked Sonic and Chip where they were heading. After hearing it, Jari-Pekka found it a fine place, though he could not remember what their local specialty was.

A while afterwards, Jari-Pekka came across Sonic and Chip once again, where he thought Sonic's name was "Mach", but was corrected again. When he then asked Sonic and Chip where they going now, Jari-Pekka heard that they were choosing between Spagonia and staying in Holoska. Upon hearing Spagonia, Jari-Pekka found it a nice place, but mistook it for Apotos. Upon hearing their choice to stay in Holoska, Jari-Pekka asked them if they came to ride the bobsled.

Not long after, Jari-Pekka saw Sonic and Chip and remembered Sonic's name as "Sonar". Despite being corrected again, Jari-Pekka let it slide and told Sonic and Chip that something was going on outside the village, before he forgot what he was saying. During the following nightfall, Jari-Pekka met Sonic and Chip again and tried to remember Sonic's name, eventually saying it was "Snack", but was corrected again. No sooner, however, Jari-Pekka saw that Sonic had a Gaia Key and asked him where he had found it.

At some point afterwards, Jari-Pekka realized that his 50th anniversary with Ursule was close. He also remembered promising Ursule to do a special thing on this anniversary, but he could not remember it. Some time later, Jari-Pekka met Sonic and Chip again, where he had Sonic hear his problem about his promise to Ursule. After that, Jari-Pekka thought that he could jog his memory if he went to the place where he proposed to Ursule, and asked Sonic to take him there and protect him. Sonic accepted Jari-Pekka's request, and, after having been taken there and reminiscing, Jari-Pekka could recall what he did that night, but not his promise. Distraught, Jari-Pekka considered giving up and giving Ursule another present.

During the next nightfall, Jari-Pekka asked Sonic for his help once more. As he could not remember his 50th anniversary promise, Jari-Pekka had decided to give Ursule another gift, so he asked Sonic to get him some Pitch Nuts from Apotos, which Sonic accepted. A short while later, Sonic returned with the Pitch Nuts to Jari-Pekka. Initially, Jari-Pekka could not remember his request, but then recalled it, and thanked Sonic. Despite being sure his anniversary would not be a total disaster, Jari-Pekka still wished that he could remember his promise.

On the day of his anniversary, Jari-Pekka finally remembered his promise to eat his stored-away meat with Ursule and as well where it was located. Not long after, Jari-Pekka ran into Sonic and Chip again, where he explained what he had just remembered, before requesting to Sonic to fetch the dried meat for him, to which Sonic accepted. Soon after, Sonic brought the dried meat to Jari-Pekka, who was overjoyed to see it. Jari-Pekka then brought the meat to Ursule, telling her that it was their anniversary and that he thought they could eat this meat together, but was shocked to hear that Ursule had forgot their anniversary. After this, Jari-Pekka met up with Sonic and Chip again and told them of how down he was about Ursule forgetting their anniversary.

Some time later, Jari-Pekka met up with Sonic and Chip once more and told Sonic that he had finally remembered Sonic's name. As he got ready to say though, Jari-Pekka quickly forgot what he was saying.

Jari-Pekka later watched on in horror with the rest of his village as Dark Gaia began to cast the world into darkness while maturing into Perfect Dark Gaia, but rejoiced as the world returned to normal following Perfect Dark Gaia's defeat at the hands of Super Sonic and the Gaia Colossus.

PS2/Wii

During the events of Sonic Unleashed, Jari-Pekka encountered Sonic the Hedgehog and Chip when the duo first arrived in Holoska, where he asked Sonic if he was the seal they ate yesterday, though he quickly realized he was wrong and tried to think harder about it.

Later, Jari-Pekka later met Sonic and Chip again, where he tried to remember Sonic's name. Sure that the answer was at the tip of his tongue, Jari-Pekka told Sonic confidently that his name was "James" and boasted about his memory. Some time later, Jari-Pekka met Sonic and Chip again, where he tried to remember Sonic's name again before saying it was "Tonic".

A while afterwards, Jari-Pekka encountered Sonic and Chip again and saw that they had collected all the temple fragments for the local Gaia Gate. Stating that they might be chosen ones after all, Jari-Pekka apologized to Sonic and Chip about saying silly things earlier, and claimed it was all a ruse to make them believe he was a senile old man. Jari-Pekka then explained to Sonic and Chip that despite Jari-Thure and Sarianna being the Temple Guardians, he had a special role as well, meaning that he could assemble a Planet Tablet from their tablet fragments. Receiving the tablet fragments from Sonic and Chip, Jari-Pekka assembled them to a Planet Tablet for them. Jari-Pekka then boasted of his accomplishment to Sonic and Chip and began explaining that their village did not care about the things happening in the world, but then forgot what he was saying and asked Sonic and Chip if they wanted some seal blubber.

Jari-Pekka later watched on in horror with the rest of his village as Dark Gaia began to cast the world into darkness while maturing into Perfect Dark Gaia, but rejoiced as the world returned to normal following Perfect Dark Gaia's defeat at the hands of Super Sonic and the Gaia Colossus.
