Lilith is my current favorite creation myth. I stumbled across her while I was researching a paper on Gilgamesh and just fell in love with her back-story. According to Hebrew legend she was the first woman created at the same time as Adam. Since they were made from the same stuff at the same time, she believed she was equal to Adam not subservient. So she refused to serve Adam and got cast out of the Garden of Eden and replaced with Eve. Instead of the first feminist with girl power, Lilith is usually portrayed as this evil vengeful demon who seduces men, steals human babies and drinks their blood. Out of this version comes the current stories of her as the mother of all vampires.

My protection dog trainer renamed my puppy Isis so I tacked on her name to my username to make it more unique.
