During Sexual encounters Adam wanted to be the aggressor by being the one on top and Lilith did not want to submit to Adam in that way as she wanted to be the aggressor as well. With this disagreement Lilith left Adam and the Garden of Eden. While leaving she was transformed into a winged Demoness.During her absence Adam felt lonely and wanted a wife, so God sent 3 Angels to retrieve Lilith.
The 3 Angels found Lilith and asked her to return to the Garden and Adam, but she did not want to go back to what felt like slavery. Lilith gained the freedom desired from the rules of man and knew that returning meant all of this being taken away.
Because of this they cast a punishment on her by having 100 of her offspring killed daily so her kin would not grow. Naturally this angered Lilith, so she retaliated and would kill newborn babies by disease, sickness and death.
In her retaliation, Lilith wanted to have more children to keep her family growing, so she would come to men at night in their sleep and have sexual encounters planting her seed, thus the myth was created of the succubus.
The 3 Angels names are Senoy, Sansenoy and Semangelof.
Found on a parchment paper of middle eastern descent was the information regarding an amulet of protection from Lilith. If you placed an amulet with the name of the 3 Angels on it, and placed it on the baby, lilith could not harm it.
