|“||I'm the Mother of Demons, the Dawn of Doom, Satan's concubine. I'm Lilith, dear boy. First wife to Adam, saved from despair by a fallen angel. I call myself Madame Satan in his honor.||”|
|— Lilith to George Hawthorne[src]|
Initially acting as Sabrina Spellman's frequent mentor, Lilith simultaneously corrupts her to the Dark Lord's desires. However, their relationship takes a drastic turn after Sabrina discovers Lilith's true intentions. It's only when their desire to take down the Dark Lord coincide that the two come together. And it's in stopping Lucifer that Lilith's goal of becoming Queen of Hell comes to fruition.
A mousy teacher at Baxter High, Ms. Wardwell is a smart, quirky mentor to Sabrina. However, her persona quickly gets taken over by Madam Satan at the start of the pilot, and she becomes a sultry, cunning manipulator. Essentially the Devil's Handmaiden, Wardwell's "lessons" are designed to corrupt Sabrina per the Devil's agenda.
Mary Wardwell, Sabrina's favorite teacher and mentor at Baxter High. When she is possessed by the devil's handmaiden, Madam Satan, Ms. Wardell turns into a sultry, cunning manipulator, always trying to lure Sabrina down the Path of Night.
Madame Satan began her life as Lilith, the first wife of Adam. She refused to submit to him and was therefore banished from the Garden of Eden by God. She wandered the wasteland for an unknown amount of time before encountering the fallen angel, Lucifer Morningstar, who helped her, and she in return healed the wounds caused by the loss of his angel wings, as she was not just the first women, she was the first witch. She subsequently pledged her allegiance to him, becoming his handmaiden and calling herself Madame Satan in his honor.
Throughout Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
As she sits upon her throne in Pandemonium, Lilith learns from her demon minion that Sabrina and her friends are in Hell, following the blood-red road. Lilith surmises that Sabrina’s come for Nick, who she has chained up at the feet of her throne after having removed his tongue. With Sabrina’s next destination being the Forest of Torment, Lilith asks if the Woodsman is well-oiled.
Upon discovering that Sabrina and her friends have escaped the Woodsman, Lilith devises a plan to teach them a lesson by bringing in some "old friends."
Lilith is informed by her demonic minion that the Plague Kings have returned. She refuses to have her sovereignty challenged by them yet again. However, this time around they’ve brought the Hordes of Hell. Between Sabrina infiltrating Hell and the Plague Kings attempting to dethrone her, Lilith devises a plan to kill two birds with one stone. She orders her minion to tell the kings they will be heard before the day is out and to bring her Sabrina, safe and alive.
From Hell, Lilith can hear the Church of Night’s prayer to her. Not long after, Sabrina, Harvey, Roz, and Theo arrive. Sabrina finds Nick chained to the feet of Lilith’s throne. Lilith informs Sabrina that certain protocols must be followed. As for Nick, who seems to be incognizant, Lilith explains that he and the Dark Lord are struggling for power on the inside.
Lilith invites Sabrina, Harvey, Roz, and Theo to take a seat at the dinner table. Roz advises her friends from eating the food as she can see what it truly is through her cunning; rotten and maggot-infested. Sabrina questions why Lilith still looks like Wardwell, to which Lilith replies that she’s grown comfortable in Wardwell’s skin. She offers to show them her real face, her green one, but Sabrina declines. She only wants to free Nick and Jesse. Sabrina assures Lilith she'll find a different prison for her father. Lilith agrees to allow Sabrina to take Nick under one condition. The hierarchy of Hell is in a state of turmoil. The Infernal Kings refuse to recognize Lilith’s authority because she’s not a Morningstar. But it would calm the dark waters if Sabrina publicly crowned her the Queen of Hell to legitimize her seat. Sabrina reluctantly agrees.
Lilith introduces Sabrina to the underworld community as Sabrina Morningstar, daughter of Lucifer Morningstar. In his absence, Sabrina has come to declare Lilith the official Queen of Hell. Beelzebub, Asmodeus, and Purson, the Plague Kings, object, claiming that Lilith is a concubine, not a queen. The realms are in chaos. The Earth, the Pit, the Heavens, and the Cosmos all reject Lilith's claim. The Plague Kings propose that Caliban, Prince of Hell take the throne. He’s been molded by the clay of the pit itself. Native son of the inferno. Since the Dark Lord’s desertion, the Nine Circles of Hell have been breaking down, and Caliban seeks to restore stability, conquer the earth, remake it as their tenth circle and enslave the tribes of mortals and witch.
After a moment, Sabrina claims the throne for herself. Harvey, Roz, and Theo watch on as this occurs. Sabrina then takes her seat at the throne. The Plague Kings denounce Sabrina as queen as she lives on Earth and is a child. Nevertheless, Sabrina insists that she will rule with Lilith as her regent. Caliban disputes Sabrina’s claim to throne, reasoning that monarchs rule by divine rights, and Sabrina is half-mortal. As Caliban prepares to challenge Sabrina for the throne, Lilith reminds him that there are rules to be followed, such as him needing a certain number of signatures. Sabrina’s eyes turn white as she warns Caliban to back off.
As queen, Sabrina dismisses the Infernal court. Harvey, Roz, and Theo support Sabrina's claim to the throne. She then informs Lilith that she’s ready to take Nick home, as well as Jesse Putnam, who Lilith releases and sends off to Heaven. Lilith warns Sabrina that while she may have bought herself some time, the Kings and Caliban will return to challenges her. Afterwards, with the evil flower in hand, Sabrina, Harvey, Roz, and Theo return to Earth with Nick.
At Baxter High, Sabrina and Roz have joined the cheerleading squad; the Baxter High Ravenettes, led by Lizzie. Billy, Carl, and the Baxter High Ravens watch from the sidelines and cheer the girls on as they rehearse a routine. Afterward, Lizzie compliments Roz and Sabrina on their performances. They’re both generally excited for the upcoming pep rally. Lilith, having watched on from the crowd, intercepts Sabrina as she has royal matters to attend to.
As regent, Lilith has come to begin Sabrina’s job training. Starting with dragging souls to Hell. Sabrina refuses, but Lilith informs her that dragging souls to Hell is her primary duty as queen, and with the Kings of Hell watching, it’s vitally important that she carries this out. If she fails, she’ll lose the throne to Caliban, and he’ll declare war on earth. Sabrina will escort the souls by hand and a path to Hell will present itself. Her first soul to collect is that of a man named Robert Robertson. Should the need arise to use force, Sabrina is being accompanied by the Infernal Bailiff.
Lilith arrives and portals Sabrina to Hell, where the Plague Kings, Asmodeus, Beelzebub, and Purson watched in disbelief as Sabrina failed to claim Robert Robertson’s soul. Lilith insists that Sabrina is still learning and that it was simply a momentary lapse of judgement. Caliban proposes that Sabrina answer why she relieved the mortal. Sabrina explains that he wasn’t worthy of damnation and decided to show him mercy, much to the Kings’ dismay. Lilith explains that Sabrina still has one more soul to claim. A man by the name of Jimmy Platt and insists that Sabrina will get it right.
In Hell, Caliban and Lilith await Sabrina’s return. Lilith assures him that Sabrina will return successful, having dragged Jimmy Platt’s soul to Hell. Lilith then orders her demon minion to fetch Caliban and the Plague Kings something to drink. She whispers that he should feel free to add his own piss and bile.
Lilith arrives to save Sabrina and Lucy after being filled in by Roz of Sabrina’s antics. Lilith was able to find Sabrina because of the psychic trail she left behind, "like a slug leaves slime." Lilith questions why Sabrina didn’t just drag Jimmy Platt to Hell as she was tasked. Sabrina explains that she was trying to use him to save Nick. Lilith agrees to take Lucy home so long as Sabrina does her job and drag Jimmy to Hell.
Lilith appears outside the Spellman home to inform Sabrina that she’s needed in court. Sabrina then reveals to Nick that in order to get him from Hell, she had to claim the throne as Queen of Hell. Lilith reminds Sabrina that she threatened the Infernal Court with a reformation, and now they’re demanding to hear Sabrina’s plans. Sabrina refuses to go, as she already planned to spend the day with Nick, but he convinces her to see to her royal duties. Afterward, they can meet up at the Academy.
Sabrina returns to Hell with Lilith, where the Plague Kings, Asmodeus, Beelzebub, and Purson, surround a table and demand an audience with Sabrina. Sabrina outlines her reformation, starting with a grand accounting of all the souls in Hell. Until then, she requests that all deal-makings with mortals come to an end. As for pre-existing contracts, Sabrina will decide which they collect on only after viewing each contract on a case-by-case basis. Caliban interrupts to challenge Sabrina for seat on the throne. He’s gathered 666 signatures of the highest born of Hell to endorse his challenge. By infernal law, it must be accepted. Caliban challenges Sabrina on a request for the "Unholy Regalia." Lilith explains that the regalia are the three most powerful occult objects in history. Relics that have been lost to the ages. Whoever collects the relics may take their seat on the throne, whether they be Morningstar or not. They begin with having to find King Herod’s crown.
Sabrina questions if the contest is rigged. Perhaps Caliban and the Kings already know where the regalia is and this is just a setup. Lilith admits this could be a setup, however, no one, not even the Dark Lord knows the locations of the regalia. Lilith explains that King Herod’s crown is only one of three of the regalia. She surmises it’ll likely end up being the best two out of three.
Lilith watches as Asmodeus, Beelzebub, Purson, and the demons of Hell cheer Caliban on as he places King Herod’s crown on his head. Sabrina arrives and punches him in the face. He didn’t help her because it’s a competition. He was quietly watching her every move, and he knew King Herod would come for his crown as he’s a guardian. Caliban assumed that either he would kill Sabrina or Sabrina would kill him. He then asks if the crown suits him, and Sabrina punches him for a second time. She then assures him that the second and third challenges will be won by her. She'd sooner slice his throat before she let Caliban take the throne. The Kings and demons then proceed to chant Sabrina’s name. Sabrina heads into the woods, where she is informed by Lilith that it’s time for the second challenge of the Unholy Regalia. Sabrina and Lilith arrive at the Academy to find Prudence, Ambrose, Hilda, Zelda, Elspeth, Melvin, the Plague Kings, and Caliban awaiting her. By Infernal Law, the Kings declare that the second quest begin. Sabrina and Caliban must seek and retrieve Pontius Pilate’s Pontius Pilate's Bowl. Sabrina attempts to postpone the challenge, but Lilith informs her that by not accepting the challenge, she threatens the existence of the Church of Night. Sabrina is at fault for that the balance of the cosmos being tipped, the pagans returning, and her coven’s loss of power. It’s all a direct result of Sabrina’s refusal to claim the throne. However, if she can uncover the Unholy Regalia, she may stand a chance of replenishing her coven’s energy. Sabrina is reluctant, but with an attack front he pagans nearing, Zelda orders her to accept the challenge and win, for the sake of the coven.
Lilith and Sabrina relocate to the Desecrated Church, where Lilith informs Sabrina that Pontius Pilate’s bowl is located on a hill just outside Jerusalem. Otherwise known as the "Place of Skulls." Where the Nazarene was crucified. Sabrina asks Lilith to teleport her there as her energies are insufficient. Lilith informs Sabrina that the bowl is locked in an eternal time loop. Almost impossible to reach unless Sabrina has mastered time magic, to which Sabrina informs Lilith that she had access to time magicks. There’s a painting at Dorian's Gray Room. It’s a portal to Jerusalem. Sabrina will use it to get there with Lilith’s help.
Sabrina meets Lilith at Dorian’s, who performs a spell that allows them to portal to the Place of Skulls. She advises Sabrina to make her way to the temple of Jerusalem as quick as she can, retrieve Pontius Pilate’s bowl, and get out. The slightest misstep could have her trapped in a time loop forever. Sabrina then douses herself in the egg water and recites a spell that takes her back in time to where the temple of Jerusalem stood. As she approaches the temple, she is apprehended by Pontius Pilate.
Sabrina makes it back to Lilith with Pontius Pilate’s bowl. She tells Lilith that Caliban was there, to which Lilith replies that he’ll hopefully be stuck in the time loop forever, which Sabrina didn’t want. Before returning to Hell to claim victory of the second challenge, Sabrina needs to help Nick and her coven.
Lilith and Sabrina return to Hell with the bowl of Pontius Pilate. When the Plague Kings ask about Caliban, Lilith tells them that Sabrina’s victory over Caliban was absolute, as Sabrina isn’t sure he survived. However, Caliban enters having survived the ordeal. He reminds Sabrina that he’s made of clay and that he waited under the dusts of the ages for 2,000 years after Sabrina cheated, stole Pilate’s bowl and left him for dead. With each having won a single challenge, it’s sudden death. The winner shall reign over Hell for all eternity. Lilith promises to reign by Sabrina’s side forever. Sabrina then tells Lilith that Lucifer escaped from the Academy, and no one knows here he is. Lilith is in fear for her life as the Dark Lord will kill her for betraying him.
Lilith receives word from her demonic minion that after searching all nine circles, the Dark Lord is nowhere to be found. However, he did send Lilith a message in the form of a fetish doll. The same doll she was gifted by Adam Masters. Lilith concludes it’s a warning from the Dark Lord that he’s on his way to seek revenge for her usurping him and imprisoning him. She orders her minion to pack her belongings, as she must seek safe haven before he manages to separate from Blackwood.
Lilith arrives at the Academy in search of safe haven from the Dark Lord. However, Zelda informs Lilith that they’re more concerned with the pagans at the moment. Lilith offers to help, but Zelda doesn’t trust her and turns Lilith away. Lilith, no longer seeking the help of the Church of Night, realizes she needs the help of a good Christian if she's to hide from Lucifer.
Lucifer, still trapped in Faustus Blackwood’s body, poses as a Christian priest to gain access to Mary Wardwell’s home in search of Lilith. He claims that he’s visiting the homes of good Christian folks to warn them that evil is afoot. The Devil has come to Greendale. Mary admits to having felt his presence and the fact there's so many things she has no explanation for. He tells Mary that Satan has allies in the form of witches, such as Sabrina Spellman and her family. He informs Mary that they seek to destroy her and make her unholy. He tells Mary how the Devil can disguise himself as loved ones. Hearing this, Mary begins to suspect that Adam is actually the Devil. Lucifer asks for Mary’s permission to confront him, which she gives. Lucifer goes in the back and finds Lilith, he then forces her to reveal herself to Mary, who runs out the door in shock.
Lucifer sits in a bathtub as Lilith pours water over his body in preparation for the separation ritual from Blackwood. She puts Lucifer to sleep and wakes up Faustus, allowing him to gain control of his body for the first time. Now that Lucifer is asleep, they have business to discuss. They must both perform an act to ensure they both remain alive after Lilith separates him from the Dark Lord.
Lucifer awakens in his body, free of the flesh Acheron. He confronts Lilith, who he plans to kill for the part she played in usurping him. However, Lilith reveals that she gave Blackwood the Mark of Cain before he left, which means no one can hurt him. And in exchange, he gave Lilith the Dark Lord’s seed. She is pregnant with his child. A male heir to his throne. He tells Lilith that she has not been pardoned, rather a stay of execution. He then orders her to summon the Infernal Court and tell them that "Daddy’s back, and he’s very, very angry."
Sabrina returns to Hell to tell Ambrose, Prudence, and Melvin that her father is no longer bonded to Blackwood. Lucifer and Lilith arrive and inform Sabrina that the Plague Kings have called for the third and final challenge. It’s up to Sabrina to retrieve Judas Iscariot’s 30 pieces of silver and secure the throne of Hell for the House of Morningstar. However, Sabrina would rather attend to her aunts. Ambrose and Prudence tell Sabrina that they'll deliver the effigies to Hilda and Zelda and protect them from Blackwood until they recover. The power siphoning might have worked, but Ambrose fears it is only temporary, and with a war brewing with the pagans, they’ll need power, which Sabrina could gain in winning the Unholy Regalia. Lilith reveals that she’s pregnant and that Sabrina has a little brother on the way. Sabrina tells Ambrose and Prudence to protect her aunts while the rest of the coven stay hidden in Hell.
As Caliban receives counsel from the two remaining Plague Kings, Beelzebub and Asmodeus, Lucifer and Lilith prep Sabrina for the final challenge. Lucifer tells Sabrina that only Judas himself knows where the silver is. And Lucifer is the one person who can take Sabrina to Judas. Lilith warns the Dark Lord against interfering. Should the kings find out, the challenge could be deemed a forfeit.
While Sabrina was dashing off, collecting trinkets, Caliban was arranging a coup. Caliban then reveals to Sabrina that Lucifer and Lilith have been embedded into the stone walls right beside her.
Lucifer, Lilith, and the Plague Kings await the return of Sabrina and/or Caliban. Past Sabrina returns to Pandemonium with the silver to claim her throne as Queen of Hell. Lucifer congratulates Sabrina for bringing honor to the House of Morningstar and tells her it is time for her coronation. Sabrina says that she’s ready to be married to Hell. In her last act as regent, Lucifer orders Lilith to prepare Sabrina for her coronation. As Sabrina prepares for the throne, all cross the realms, things returned to their natural balance.
ucifer and Lilith watch as Sabrina Morningstar claims her rightful seat at the throne of Hell. Her disciples, including the Plague Kings, kneel as she approaches her throne. They then applaud as she reaches the top of the staircase, looking down on them.
In her guise as Mary Wardwell, Lilith appeared as a Caucasian female in her mid-forties, tall, with dark hair and blue eyes. She preferred clothes in black or dark grey. In her natural human form, she takes on the appearance of a physically wrecked and jittery young teenage girl with filthy pale skin, matted greased hair and raggedy clothing. Her true demonic appearance consists of green skin, skull-studded eyes, no nose, and razor-sharp teeth.
Lilith is a cold, sadistic, and deeply determined individual who is extremely loyal to the Dark Lord, and is completely relentless and remorseless over any crime she commits. As the very first witch in existence, she is also a formidable presence with an abundance of intelligence and cunning, though she conceals it with her relatively maternal demeanour, which makes her come across as a truly nurturing and caring façade.
However, Lilith's most defining feature would be her capacity for vengeance - despite her initial devotion to and love for the Dark Lord, she had absolutely no qualms with turning against him upon the realisation of his lies, and subsequently played in a major role in foiling his plans. She was also capable of expressing genuine gratitude, as demonstrated by how she restored Sabrina's witch powers and returned the real Miss Wardwell after Sabrina helped her to defeat the Dark Lord.
