Angel Series:  Lilith by Seifex Angel Series:  Lilith by Seifex
Biblical: Lilith is Adam's first wife. She was created from sand like Adam, whereas Eve was created from Adam's rib. Lilith constantly pushed for equality with Adam (which in the old school Arabian/Hebrew culture was an absolute no-no) and refused to do what he told her. As I understand it she also had far too many children at too quick a pace. For her disobedience and other things she was booted out of the garden of Eden, at which point she swore to spawn children that would bedevil Adam's descendents for the rest of time. Eve was later created from Adam's rib in a bid to make a woman that would do what her husband asked of her.

Evangelion: Lilith is the 1st angel to be found by Seele, but the official 2nd angel because of her succeeding Adam in creation. She is crucified on a giant red cross deep within Central Dogma, a subterainian cave. She bleeds "LCL," which substitutes for oxygen when inhaled by humans. From her abdomen, dozens of pairs of legs sprout. She has the Lance of Longinus (the lance used to stab Jesus in the side to assure he was dead) pinned into her chest, and as long as it remains there, she cannot grow her own legs. On her face, is a purple mask which has the symbol of Seele [a triangle with 7 eyes, representing both the trinity (the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost) and the 7 eyes of God which are said to watch the whole world]. In the End of Evangelion, when Rei becomes one with Lilith, the mask comes off and she comes from the cross.

it was said that in the older version of Evangelion (1999 ish) you could see pipes coming out the back of lilith's skull and back, labeled LCL A, LCL B, LCL C. which implies that there was more than one way of getting LCL from lilith other than the wound from the Holy Lance.

The Bible Lilith's continuous births and the legs sprouting out of the Eva Lilith kind of have a connection. I just noticed that! Interesting facts.

Evangelion rules!! But i do find lilith a bit weird coz shes like a white thing who dont have a face or even have a complete form but is that lilith on the cross just a empty shell?? is it true it doesnt have a soul?? and Rei is the one carrying her soul??

Well, Lillith's story is not official Bible canon, at least according to most Christian and Jewish denominations. Hers is another interpretation of the Genesis story, along with the book of Enoch (considered non-canon, and speaks of Angel/human hybrids rising up on the Earth and doing evil, heh) and other Dead Sea Scrolls. To the best of our knowledge, however, none of the DSS speak of Angels being sent one by one to test mankind for the next stage (i.e. Third Impact). Or to rescue Adam. Biblical canon indicates that Adam and Eve gave birth to mankind, after being cast out of the Garden of Eden for disobeying God, and that humans can join with God in heaven by accepting Jesus Christ as their Messiah. A few DSS have different interpretations of Jesus's stories (non-canon Gospels) but they retain the same basic message: Jesus died for our sins, so no need for a Third Impact. SEELE was on one hand, trying to achieve godhood and immortality, and on the other, save humanity from God's wrath since we're descended from Lillith and thus a race of demons. Which is, again, yet another interpretation of scripture. It's just not supported by anything concrete.

Of course, I'm not trying to convert anyone or stuff like that. And I do like Evangelion. I just REALLY doubt that God, who is supposed to be omnipotent and omniscient, would let us clone His Angels and defy His will. I mean, it's GOD. The entire planet could go up in flames with just a thought from Him.

So, I tend to agree with the concept of Angels as possibly earlier evolutions of [i]Homo[/i], different roads taken on the evolutionary path. Or, possibly alien lifeforms that landed on Earth millions of years ago and adapted our evolution to their own in order to survive on our world. The idea that they could have given "birth" to mankind is rather dubious, considering the extensive fossil record we have that doesn't show anything like that occurring. ^__^ Of course, I'm also a Stargate: SG-1 fan, so it's fun to think of the Angels as Ancients who got stuck when they ascended, and are thus half-mortal, half-corporeal. And that as SEELE and NERV get closer to discovering Third Impact, the Angels continue to come to try and prevent it. But, because they are basically mutated freaks because of ascension gone wrong, they aren't the brightest bulbs.

... I know. I'm a total geek. Excellent job anyway!

Poor thing... I feel sorry for her.

I've also heard that Lilith wanted to be on top during, ah, "relations" and Adam wouldn't let her ^^;

I have a version Lilith in my cast of angels, but I haven't drawn her yet.

I believe another reason she was expelled was because she had more of a mind of her own and wouldn't do what they told her. Then she became the mother of Demons. Thats what i've heard anyway. I don't know much about the bible.

Lilith is mentioned in the Kabbalah, as the first woman before eve. Even the names of the other angels in evangelion are taken from kabbalah! I hope I've been of some help to you!!

I do apologize for being snarky. But although it didn't say her name in there it did mention that there could have been another. But i just suppose that is how one interprets the Bible

Um... it says up there under Biblical. It has the Biblical and the Evangelion versions. Like i said, i did read somewhere that she was expelled for having a mind of her own, but i don't know the bible. But Seifex does and since under the biblical part up there it talks about Lilith maybe you should re-read that. And i will also get right on looking up where i found my info as soon as i get the chance. Now i just found out from my father that Lilith is not actully in the bible that she is in related mythology. And my father used to be a christian so i think that i will listen to him on this one. Now yes i used the term mythology and i am sure that you will bring that up that it has the word myth in it therefore it is not true, but i believe that the bible is myth so i guess we can be square. If this comment was not intended for me at all but for Seifex, i apologize for being snarky
