Lilith is, according to some Jewish folklore, the original wife of Adam who was given to him prior to Eve but came into conflict with Adam (and by extension God) via defying their wishes - she would proceed along the path of degeneration and become a seductive demoness akin to a succubus who would mother many demonic offspring and abandon her once divine origins.

To correct this, God created Eve, who ultimately would prove to be treacherous as well by giving in to the Serpent's trickery and feeding Adam the forbidden fruit - causing the legendary "Fall from Grace". As for the fate of Lilith, according to tradition she stalks the land as a powerful demon and Jewish folklore often tells of how children are given special amulets to defend themselves against Lilith and her demon-spawn (these amulets are inscribed with the name of angels as a form of divine protection).
