Na’amah

Naamah or Na’amah (Hebrew: נַעֲמָה‎; “pleasant”) is a demon described in the Zohar, a foundational work of Jewish mysticism. She is often conflated with another Naamah, sister to Tubal-cain. According to the Zohar, after Cain kills AbelAdam separates from Eve for 130 years. During this time, Lilith and Naamah visit him and bear his demonic children, who became the Plagues of Mankind. She and Lilith cause epilepsy in children. There are mixed views of Lilith in the Zohar. In one account she is Samael’s counterpart and a mother of demons. In another she is seen seducing the fallen angels as Naamah . When Lilith and Naamah were with Adam in his 130-year separation from Eve after the fall, they had daughters born from their union. These were the nashiym, the lilim, the liloth spirits who were the ones who seduced the Watchers
