Origin

When Chie and others went in Yukiko's Midnight Channel to rescue Yukiko, Chie was confronted by her own Shadow. At first, just like Yosuke, Chie refused to believe what her Shadow form was saying at her and rejected it, which gave it more power and went rampaging. When it was defeated and accepted by Chie, it's transformed into her own Persona Tomoe, representing The Chariot Arcana.
