Icon of the Elsilence from Radiant Dawn.

A staff that prevents enemies from using magic. It has been strengthened by senators' research.



First game

Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn

Elsilence (Japanese: エルサイレス Elsilence) is an offensive staff which is exclusive to Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. As its name implies, it is an enhanced version of the Silence staff, inflicting silence status on opponents to inhibit their use of magic and ability to talk for several turns. Compared to the basic Silence staff, it has significantly greater range which does not depend on the unit's magic stat. It is unavailable to the player and is used only by Bishops from the Disciples of Order in Part 4.
