The idea for this one came after searching for mythilogical story involving supernatual elements like demons, angels and the like. I wanted to create an image and story that told about the turning or corruption of things that are pure. And if you know anything about the story of Lilith in either the bible or Roman/Greek gods tales then it might make sense. Lilith was one of "three ladies of darkness" and has been known as many things in different parts of the world and religions (the Sumerian Lilith, Lilith on Persian Incantation Bowls, Lilith in the Hebrew Bible, Lilith as Adam's First Wife, Lilith as Wife of Sammael, and even is mentioned in many pegan religions).
"A female demon of the night who supposedly flies around searching for newborn children either to kidnap or strangle them. Also, she sleeps with men to seduce them into propagating demon sons. Legends told about Lilith are ancient. The rabbinical myths of Lilith being Adam's first wife seem to relate to the Sumero-Babyloian Goddess Belit-ili, or Belili. To the Canaanites, Lilith was Baalat, the "Divine Lady." On a tablet from Ur, ca. 2000 BC, she was addressed as Lillake."
But the main point of it is that Lilith was soul eating succubus. In the stories either God or Zues was angered at Lilith and sent three angels to either change Liliths mind/ways or bring her back to Eden or to Adam/God/Zues. If she refused then all of her demon children would be taken by God/Zues. Well she refused and cursed the angels and all of her demon children we dead (which at that time she was producing 100 demon children a day).


Now then after all of that long story I wanted to add a twist. I am not really a religious person and I prefer to look at these stories as fabels and great fantasy. I wanted to change the story a bit in that he words to the 3 angels (curses actually) either changed their ways or physically cursed them into demons. And this is a reflection of of them.
