The dreams Lilin shares with her victims are coloured in gold. Gorgeous and impure, these dreams satify all males who fall under Lilin's influence. Morning never comes to these poor men with exhilarated grins on their sleeping faces.
In Mesopotamian demonology, Lilin were hostile night spirits that attack men. They had less power than gods.
In Jewish mythology Lilin (Hebrew:לילין) is a term for night spirits. In Targum Sheni Esther 1:3 King Solomon, who commanded all spirits, had the lilin dance before him. Lilith and her daughter Lilim are both considered to be night spirits. Lilim is also considered by older Jewish tradition to be Cain's wife.
In the Syriac Apocalypse of Baruch, Lilin come from the desert and they are similar to shedim.
