Lilith was originally a storm demon known as "Lilitu" in ancient Mesopotamian myth around 3000 BC and she was thought to have been the cause of disease, illness, and death. She later appears as a nocturnal demon in Jewish lore.
In Judaism, Lilith was the first wife of Adam, however she was cast out of the garden of Eden for her sinful ways. In this tale, she was the first to eat of the fruit of knowledge and wanted to be either equal to or greater than Adam. After she left the garden of Eden, she attempted to create her own garden and became the consort of many different demons, including the fallen angel Samael, and bore many succubi known as the Lilim. Meanwhile Adam grew lonely, and beseeched God to forgive Lilith and return her to Eden. God told Lilith that if she did not return, he would punish her by taking away her children. She refused, her children were taken, and since that day she has become a demoness at war with the sons and daughters of Adam, targeting children in specific.
Another version of the story as told in the 'Midrash Abkier', is that after Cain's homicide brings death to the world, Adam separates from Eve and fasts for 130 years. When the demoness Lilith (also known as Pizna) saw his beauty, she instantly desired him, and took him by force by using his own sin against him. She bore him many demonic spirits known to be a plague to mankind.
Lilith is the highest level Night demon which can be obtained by evolving a Lilim or contracted in the upper levels of the Tower of Kagutsuchi. In the original version's Debug mode, there is a cutscene involving Lilith opening an optional dungeon near the Mantra HQ. This dungeon was dropped in favor of the Labyrinth of Amala.
Lilith appears as the Persona of the Devil Arcana in Persona 3. Her fusion prerequisite requires the protagonist to complete Elizabeth's 48th request, which grants the protagonist a key item to fuse Lilith. Lilith's fusion prerequisite requires the protagonist to perform a Cross-Spread Fusion in the Velvet Room using Lilim, Vetala, Incubus, and Succubus.

Lilith appears as a bonus boss on the 4th Day in the Original Wife event. She is seen at the 'Valgate in Osaka, having charmed several men and sending them to fight the player. Because the men are fighting against their will, the player has to defeat Lilith without defeating any of the charmed men.
Lilith possesses a unique racial ability limited to this fight only: Temptation. At the start of a skirmish, Temptation activates and attemps to charm the opposing team. It always works against male team leaders, but has a moderate chance of success against anything else. Taking advantage of Curse resistances can protect against this while netting Extra Turns.
Defeating Lilith earns the player the Spell Breaker title and the ability to fuse her in the Cathedral of Shadows.
