According to Jewish folklore, the lilin (or lilim) are the daughters of Lilith and Adam, engendered while she was his wife. They are demons, with their function being that of a succubus. Men and also mothers feared the attack of the lilin, because they were also said to kidnap children, like Lilith.
The lilin are considered night spirits.
