Lilith was an ancient creature considered the mother of demons. An ally of Angel, she favored him due to the importance she gave to redemption.

Biography[edit | edit source]

In 2019, as Angel arrived in Sunnydale, Lilith entered his new house and cast protection over it so nothing born from her could harm the vampire inside his home. This did not include mankind. Angel asked her what he owed her, since she didn't do anything for free, and she mentioned she found irritating whenever she was portrayed as a white woman on television.[1]

Lilith then offered him some direction and told about a creature that feeds on the living and was affecting the current generation. Lilith also said she was sorry, but he would lose a friend that night. As slowly disappearing, Lilith told Angel he should avenge all of them.[1]

Powers and abilities[edit | edit source]

Lilith had immortality, was able to perform shapeshifting to display her demonic form, had precognition abilities, and could cast protection from demons.
