Sin

according to Milton, is twinkeeper with Death of the gates of Hell. She sprang full-grown from the head of Satan.

... Woman to the waist, and fair,
But ending foul in many a scaly fold
Voluminous and vast, a serpent armed
With mortal sting.

Paradise Lost. ii. 650-653. Original sin. (See Adam.)
