History[edit | edit source]
Lilith was the first wife of Adam. They had an unhappy marriage, because Lilith never loved Adam and he always loved her, as never really loved Eve. Then Lilith refused to obey Adam and "his father" and she was cast out of the Garden of Eden by God. When she left, she took a stone from the garden and had it fashioned onto a ring as a reminder of who she was and who she chose to be. After their seperation, God created Eve for Adam.
Lilith tamed the beasts of the night and went on to birth a species of Demon called the Lilim, which includes Mazikeen, and also the demons Dromos and Squee. She sent her children to Hell to act as an army for Lucifer Morningstar.
In 1946 New York City, Lilith was a Cabaret singer using the name "Lily Rose" who contacted Lucifer to get his help in finding her ring, which had been stolen. After finally retrieving the ring, Lilith chose to give up her immortality and placed it inside the ring. She gave the ring to Lucifer, stating that she wanted to try connecting with humanity and could only do that if she knew her life could end.
Years later, Mazikeen hears Lilith's story through Trixie, who had tricked it out of Lucifer. Maze tracks her mother down to an apartment and discovers a now-elderly Lilith. Maze, who demands to know why she and her siblings were abandoned. Lilith states that it was to make them strong and that it worked. She also says she sent them to Lucifer because he needed an army. Maze then leaves in disgust.
Sometime later, Maze returns to the apartment and is told her mother had died several days earlier.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Lilith is a elegant woman and sure of herself. According to Mazikeen, Lilith is a fearless woman, even when she gave birth Maze and her siblings. she's not much of a mother and if how Maze describes her childhood, this is well justified. It seems as though instead of nurturing and caring for her children, as a mother should do, she chose to instead train them to be killing and torturing machines. However, this itself is her own version of protecting them and making them strong, as, in her eyes, if her children are never attached to anything, they can never be abandoned or betrayed. Lilith states that while she doesn’t have many pleasant memories of her time with Adam, she loved the Garden of Eden, taking a stone from it to serve as a reminder that she doesn't need Adam or God. After meeting Gertie and learning her motivations, Lilith takes an interest in making an emotional connection with humans, but realizes that she can't do that while keeping her immortality, so she gives it up.
When confronted by Mazikeen, Lilith showed no interest in speaking to her daughter and seemed to regret her choice of giving up her immortality.
