Lilith is Dracula's oldest child from his first wife Zofia.  Zofia was forced on Dracula by his father and thus he never truly loved her.  When his father died he forced Zofia and their young daughter (Lilith) to leave Castle Dracula so he could remarry.  Due to the trauma of this Zofia shortly thereafter committed suicide.  Lilith was then raised by a gypsie sorceress named Gretchin.  Gretchin's son is killed by Dracula which enrages the Gretchin she casts a spell on Lilith to make her into a powerful vampire that could oppose him forever.  Lilith is given all the powers of a vampire but with almost none of the weaknesses.  Her existence is also tied to her father such that so long as he lives, so will she.  When killed, Lilith would reappear taking over a body of a woman who hated her father and badly wished for his death.  This hostess would share the body with Lilith and could shape change including clothes back and forth. 

For a time, Lilith and Dracula settle upon a truce and agree to avoid each other.  When Dracula loses his powers he seeks out Lilith and asks her to bite him so he can be restored.  Lilith refuses and the two battle.  In this battle, Dracula reveals that the curse that connects also prevents her from being able to fully kill him.

In the Vampiric Verses story line Doctor Strange uses the Montesi Formula to eradicate all vampires including Lilith and her father Dracula.  However, the power of the spell is eventually weakened and Dracula returns.  The curse that ties Lilith to her father still functions and when Dracula is reborn so to is Lilith.
