Eve? Lilith? Both? Neither? Why?
I'm going with Lilith since she originally came from Babylonian lore which is where the Hebrew myths came from in the first place. The earliest recorded reference to Lilith is in the prologue to the Babylonian epic poem Gilgamesh, dating from as early as 2000 BCE. Much later, around the 9th century BCE, related demons are attested in Babylonian lore, including the male Lilu and the female Lilitu and Ardat Lili. All three are vampire-like monsters that prey on infants and pregnant women during the night. The story of Lilith that has come to be the most famous is found in The Alphabet of Ben-Sira, an anonymous work in Hebrew and Aramaic written between the 8th and 11th centuries CE. It is The Alphabet of Ben-Sira that tells of Lilith as Adam's first wife.

Lilith left because she wanted to be equal to Adam,and he wanted nothing to do with THAT! Her argument was that they were made at the same time,so she was equal to him. Our first feminist!

I'm going with Eve, but it doesn't matter. The main message of the story is the same, God created men and women. I'm sure Lilith was a lovey person even if she was a little annoyed with Adam.
