A family of Babylonian Demons, composed of a male lilu and two females, lilitu and ardat-lili. The Demons have associations with Lilith.

The lilu and lilitu haunt deserts and threaten pregnant women and infants. The ardat-lili is incapable of sex and takes out her frustrations upon young men by rendering them impotent. She also makes women sterile. The ardat-lili is thought have the form of a scorpion-tailed she-wolf.
