Lilith is the daughter of Mephisto, sister of Lucion, mother of Andariel and is believed to be Queen of the Succubi and matriarch of demons. After her legions of Succubi and strongest daughter Andariel were killed by mortals who successfully defended the Worldstone, Lilith swore to personally intervene. She masterminded the revival of Diablo by manifesting herself in the mortal realm and performing a ritual of Dark Summoning. This ritual, long thought to be impossible by the most powerful mortal wizards, allowed Lilith to link with Diablo across realms, strengthening him until he was finally able to once again reincarnate himself in the mortal plane. Rage and a deep yearning for revenge boiled within the eyes of the Lord of Terror, and together he and Lilith resurrected the two remaining Prime Evils as well as Duriel and Izual, two of their strongest agents.

Diablo announced his grand plan - the Three were finally strong enough to spread Pandemonium throughout Sanctuary. Lilith could have easily conducted an assault on her own, but because she had been left severely weakened by the Dark Summoning ritual, she agreed to aid the Prime Evils and command some of their remaining forces.

Lilith's role in Sanctuary's history is revealed far more in Richard A. Knaack's books the Sin War Trilogy. The daughter of Mephisto and the sister of Lucion, Lilith is a manipulator and seductress. Even very attractive in her demonic form her charms earned her the affection of powerful beings such as Inarius and the Sin War trilogy's protagonist Uldyssian , using them as pawns to further her own goals.

It is revealed that she along with other rogue demons and angels created Sanctuary. Her offspring with Inarius resulted with many of the Nephalem (angel and demon offspring) such as Rathma and generations later Uldyssian and Mendeln. Because Lilith desired to use the Nephalem as a powerful army, strong enough to challenge the Burning Hells and the High Heavens, she came into conflict with Inarius who wanted to eradicate the Nephalem. This resulted in Lilith killing off many if not all the rogue demons and angels that were with them. Her actions prevented Inarius from eradicating the Nephalem, but not her subsequent banishment.

She later returned still wishing to fulfil her ambitions during the events of the Sin War Trilogy. She weakened the power of the Worldstone that prevented the Nephalem from developing their powers. She then helped awaken Uldyssian's dormant power as Nephalem, tempting and manipulating him in her quest to gain a Nephalem army. She failed however, due to Uldyssian, who used the very powers that Lilith had helped awaken and the Nephalem army that Lilith desired against the demon. Inarius also played a part in her downfall, though hidden from Uldyssian and his companions and even Rathma. Lilith was then banished once again by Inarius.
