The untold truth of LilithPlayed by British guest starring actress Jessica ClarkLilith makes her debut on the episode " In the Beginning " in the series' fifth season. The very first vampire made by Godshe's believed by Sanguinistas to have been created before Adam and Eve, who, according to the Book of the Vampyrwere designed to sustain Lilith. Her progeny in turn would be sustained by their children, the human race. Playing a recurring role through the series' fifth and sixth seasons, Lilith is worshiped as a god by many vampires, but her divinity and existence are doubted by at least as many. Even she insists that she is not a god, and claims that she has spoken to, and still follows, God. Lilith is a mysterious figure. She tends to speak in riddles and does not seem to share information lightly. Unlike many of her followers, she doesn't consider herself a god among vampires, stating there is no god but God. Even after the True DeathLilith feels responsibility for the continued existence of the vampire race. Going so far as to manifest herself through her blood to secure a new savior in her place. Adam and Eve were created to sustain her, beginning the natural order of humans existing to service vampires although this is never confirmed by Lilith or anyone who could verify it. According to the orthodox religious view, Lilith eventually met the sun at the hands of man. This is in fact false, as the creature that killed her was a fae turned vampire. Lilith turned the fae Macklyn Warlow into a vampire in the year 3. However, Warlow grew to despise her after he attempted to return home four years later against her adviceand then proceeded to slaughter his entire village, due to his vampiric instincts. He returned to the cave in which she slept, and used his photokinesis to destroy part of the ceiling of the cave, allowing the sun to come through and destroy the progenitor of all vampires. However, a small amount of her blood remained. Lilith's other progenies gathered her remains in an earthen jar. At some possibly multiple point in the intervening centuries, the remains were transferred, eventually winding up in a fine crystal vial. At some point, the Book of the Vampyr was composed, and combined with the Guardian and the last of her blood, a religion enshrining Lilith as a dark saint or even a goddess was born. After Roman met the true death at the hands of Russell EdgingtonSalome and Nora organized a ceremony in which the surviving chancellors and a select group of newcomers drank small drops of Lilith's blood. The vampires swiftly became intoxicated, wandering through the streets of New Orleans in search of a meal. As they gorged themselves on a private wedding party, the group experienced a vivid hallucination of Lilith rising from a pool of blood. While in bed with Salome, Bill Compton hallucinates that she is Sookie Stackhouseand then that she is a blood-encrusted Lilith. Bill and Nora force-feed Eric a drop of Lilith's blood, with Nora taking a dose herself to share the vision. The vampire siblings are greeted by a vision of Godricwho admonishes Nora for her ideology and denounces Lilith as "a godless god". An apparition of Lilith creeps up behind Godric and, ignoring Nora's pleas for mercy, rips off his head. While praying in the shrine one day, Lilith appears to Bill.
Lilith in popular culture
From c. The resulting Lilith legend continues to serve as source material in modern Western cultureliterature, occultismfantasy, and horror. Jewish folklorefrom the Alphabet of Sirach [ sentence fragment ] This contrasts with Evewho was created from one of Adam's ribs: Genesis The legend of Lilith developed extensively during the Middle Agesin the tradition of Aggadahthe Zoharand Jewish mysticism. Interpretations of Lilith found in later Jewish materials are plentiful, but little information has survived relating to the SumerianAkkadianAssyrian and Babylonian view of this class of demons. Handy, agree that Lilith derives from Mesopotamian demons but argue against finding evidence of the Hebrew Lilith in many of the epigraphical and artifactual sources frequently cited as such e. In Hebrew-language texts, the term lilith or lilit translated as "night creatures", "night monster", "night hag", or "screech owl" first occurs in a list of animals in Isaiaheither in singular or plural form according to variations in the earliest manuscripts. Commentators and interpreters often envision the figure of Lilith as a dangerous demon of the night, who is sexually wanton, and who steals babies in the darkness. In the Dead Sea Scrolls 4Qthe term first occurs in a list of monsters. Jewish magical inscriptions on bowls and amulets from the 6th century AD onwards identify Lilith as a female demon and provide the first visual depictions of her. The Sumerian female demons lili have no etymological relation to Akkadian lilu"evening". After ten years of growth, she comes to harvest it and finds a serpent living at its base, a Zu bird raising young in its crown, and that a ki-sikil-lil-la-ke made a house in its trunk. Gilgamesh is said to have killed the snake, and then the zu bird flew away to the mountains with its young, while the ki-sikil-lil-la-ke fearfully destroys its house and runs for the forest. Suggested translations for the Tablet XII spirit in the tree include ki-sikil as "sacred place", lil as "spirit", and lil-la-ke as "water spirit". A connection between the Gilgamesh ki-sikil-lil-la-ke and the Jewish Lilith was rejected by Dietrich Opitz  [ failed verification ] and rejected on textual grounds by Sergio Ribichini Kramer's translation of the Gilgamesh fragment was used by Henri Frankfort  and Emil Kraeling  to support identification of a woman with wings and bird-feet in the Burney Relief as related to Lilith. Frankfort and Kraeling incorrectly identified the figure in the relief with Lilith, based on a misreading of an outdated translation of the Epic of Gilgamesh. The Arslan Tash amulets are limestone plaques discovered in at Arslan Tashthe authenticity of which is disputed. William F. AlbrightTheodor H. Gaster and others, accepted the amulets as a pre-Jewish source which shows that the name Lilith already existed in the 7th century BCE but Torczyner identified the amulets as a later Jewish source. The word lilit or lilith only appears once in the Hebrew Biblewhile the other seven terms in the list appear more than once and thus are better documented. The reading of scholars and translators is often guided by a decision about the complete list of eight creatures as a whole. She shall become an abode for jackals and a haunt for ostriches. Eberhard Schrader  and Moritz Abraham Levy  suggest that Lilith was a goddess of the night, known also by the Jewish exiles in Babylon. However, this view is challenged by some modern research such as by Judit M. Blair who considers that the context indicates unclean animals. The early 5th-century Vulgate translated the same word as lamia. The translation is, "And demons shall meet with monsters, and one hairy one shall cry out to another; there the lamia has lain down and found rest for herself". Wycliffe's Bible preserves the Latin rendering lamia :. Isa And demons and monsters shall meet, and the hairy ones shall cry out one to another, there hath the lamia lain down, and found rest for herself. Isa and the screech owl shall rest there, and shall finde for her selfe a quiet dwelling.
