Khailaw: According to occultist T. Schrire’s publication Hebrew Magic Amulets, Khailaw is one of the many names of the demon Lilith. In Jewish lore, Lilith is a night-demon with a penchant for attacking infants and pregnant women. She was particularly feared by women in childbirth, and any complications from childbirth were often attributed to
her. In the past, amulets were inscribed with these names and used to protect people from the Lilith demon attacks.
