    Lilith (Hebrew: לילית‎ Līlīt; Arabic: ليليث‎ Līlīṯ) is a female Mesopotamian storm demon associated with wind and was thought to be a bearer of disease, illness, and death. The figure of Lilith first appeared in a class of wind and storm demons or spirits as Lilitu, in Sumer, circa 4000 BC. Many scholars place the origin of the phonetic name "Lilith" at somewhere around 700 BC despite post-dating even to the time of Moses. Lilith appears as a night demon in Jewish lore and as a screech owl in Isaiah 34:14 in the King James version of the Bible. In later folklore, "Lilith" is the name for Adam's first wife.

    Then there is this tale:

    The story of Lilith that has come to be the most famous is found in The Alphabet of Ben-Sira, an anonymous work in Hebrew and Aramaic written between the 8th and 11th centuries CE. It is The Alphabet of Ben-Sira that tells of Lilith as Adam's first wife. According to that story, she refused to lie beneath Adam during sexual intercourse, and he in turn refused to lie beneath her. Lilith then called upon the name of God, left Eden, and settled on the Red Sea coast, where she consorted with Samael and other demons. Her children by Samael are known as the lilin.

    Adam asked God to return Lilith to him, and he sent three angels on the task. They were to kill 100 of Lilith's children for each day she failed to return. Instead of returning to Eden, Lilith responded to the threat with one of her own; she vowed to torment the children of Adam and Eve throughout eternity.

    Thus the children of Lilith are "lilin".

    According to some stories, they are the daughters of Lilith, Adam's first wife, by the Angel of Death Samael,[citation needed] often identified with Satan. They are demons, with their function being similar to that of a succubus. While men feared them for this reason, mothers feared the attack of the lilin because they were also said to kidnap children, as Lilith herself did.

    Upon deserting Adam and turning against God, Lilith was warned that one hundred of her demonic children would die daily if she did not return to God. She refused, and so it is said that one hundred lilin die daily.

    The masculine of lili is lilu, a demon attested in Akkadian mythology. See Lilith for an etymological discussion.

    According to Jewish tradition, after she was kicked out of Eden, Lilith lay with demons and gave birth to a race of monsters. So yes, she had children. And she was probably extremely hot, being as she was the first woman created, in the image of God.

    Lilith is a female spirit in ancient Semitic legend, alleged to haunt deserted places. She is also the first wife of Adam in Hebrew folklore, believed to have been in existence before the creation of Eve. When removed from Eden she had thousands of chidren with Angels. These are of those who Able chose for his wives. Most of the Children of Lilith were killed in a kind of genocide when the world was flooded and only the family of Noah was given to continue life.

    As in the bible's Lilith. She was the first succubus right? I think they were demons, not really sure if they had any specific names. Maybe they were more succubuses and incubuses, sorry if this doesn't help much.
