With so much lore to gather in Midnight Suns, we’ve made it easier to learn all the key details about this game’s mysterious villain.

Who is Lilith in Marvel’s Midnight Suns?

Lilith is the primary antagonist in Marvel’s Midnight Suns, with her backstory originating in the 1600s. Back in this time period Lilith was happily married and had a child before a deadly plague swept through her village.

Witnessing her husband succumb to illness, Lilith harnessed magic from the Darkhold aka the Book of the Damned – recently seen in the MCU’s Doctor Strange: In The Multiverse of Madness.

Though Lilith was successful in saving her child, their relationship would drastically change, as they would later become The Hunter – an original playable character concocted by the devs.

A decedent of the Elder Gods, Lilith was formerly a warrior of light for a race known as The Blood. Her battles would see her fight alongside allies such as the Caretaker, before selling her soul to the Elder God Chthon as she fell down a corrupted path.

With her dastardly army, the Lilin, she is prepared to wage war on humanity as part of the Salem Witch Trials.

Following her first defeat at the hands of the Midnight Suns, Lilith’s body is entombed for centuries – until Hydra uncovers her remains, using Hydra technology and the Darkhold to resurrect her once more. How foolish of them.
