I did some digging and here's what I found on Lilith.
In Hebrew folklore, Lilith is a female demon in the form of a beautiful
woman with long, streaming hair. She is the personification of feminine
lust. She is the enemy of young children and works mischief at night; she is
referred to as a 'night owl' in Isaiah 34:14. She was adopted into medieval
Judeo-Christian demonology as a
kind of Lamia. In the Zohar she is described as 'the harlot, the wicked, the
false, the black'.
According to the Midrash, Lilith was created before Eve but fell out with
Adam because she would not accept his dominance. She may be conceived from
his nocturnal emissions spilt during his sleep. Her origin lies in a
Babylonian (or Assyrian) myth, but references can also be found in later
myths. Her name means "she of the night"
