According to Hebrew folk tradition, Lilith was the first wife of Adam, who was banished as she refused to be subservient to her husband. She appears in the bible only once, as a word sometimes used to translate the word for 'screech owl' in Isaiah 34:14 of the Hebrew Bible. This may come from the fact that Lilith has had a long past as a Mesopotamian storm demon whose name may mean 'night' and who is often depicted as having wings and bird talons.
