|Icon of the Elsleep from Radiant Dawn.|
A staff that puts enemy units to sleep for five turns. Senatorial research has strengthened it.
Elsleep (Japanese: エルスリープ Elsleep) is an offensive staff which is exclusive to Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. As its name implies, it is an enhanced version of the Sleep staff, putting enemies to sleep to prevent them from acting for several turns. Compared to the basic Sleep 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.
