Lilith knows a con man when she spots one, and Stanton strikes her as a con man, so she goes out of her way to expose him under the request of a client interested in his potential as a medium. But when he fools the audience by accurately guessing what she has in her handbag, she wants to know how he did it, and invites him to her office. She is most curious about his psyche and what is driving him—she agrees to give him information in exchange for him answering her questions, so she can gain a better comprehension of what drives him… or so Stanton thinks. Lilith is actually in a long con, manipulating him into doing what she wants. She tells him things deliberately, knowing he will take advantage of them (that she records all their sessions—she suspects he will steal and listen to the tapes, which will leave her free of any blame if and when he gets arrested). She tells him things to get him to trust her, and even enters into a sexual relationship with him, knowing she can deny it all and attribute any claims on his part to her patient ‘objectifying’ her and his fixation for her. In the end, she winds up stealing thousands of dollars from him, while setting him up to take the fall for a murder. But she takes her scheme one step too far and tells him she loves him as part of the con, which makes him suspicious of her. Lilith prior to then was blunt, assertive, and inquisitive, asking him difficult questions and forcing him to confront his inner demons. This sudden shift from logic to emotion gave her away – in truth, she does not care about him, she merely sees him as an opportunity. Lilith is also poor at reacting in the moment; she was incapable of thinking fast on her feet when he exposed her crime, and almost got strangled to death as a result (an inferior Se inability to adapt and respond quickly).

Lilith is highly assertive; the first time she meets Stanton, she challenges him in public and calls him out as a potential con man, by telling the entire crowd that she thinks he’s using verbal signals to communicate—some kind of code. When he’s drawn to her, Lilith tries repeatedly to get the upper hand, offering what she knows about her client in exchange for information about Stanton as she pieces together his life intuitively and reads into his intentions. She likes to make sure she has the upper hand in their relationship, and shamelessly leads him into a trap in order to defraud him, steal all of the money he collects from her client (the same man who knifed her in the chest, and whom she cannot touch otherwise), and then get him arrested, but she underestimates his personal power and is surprised when he attacks her. Her 9 wing makes her withdrawn and private, somewhat reclusive, and she prefers subtle methods to overt violence.
