Palla is recruited at the beginning of the chapter, albeit starting far from the Altean army. She is equipped with a Silver Lance, and as such, is able to take out quite a few of the reinforcement Cavaliers and preventing the thief from destroying the nearby village. Keeping this village alive is VERY important, should you want the full cast of characters, as Julian recruits 3 character in this game (Matthis, Rickard and Lena) and Julian is recruited in this village. After killing off the reinforcements, have Palla rest on any of the 3 forts to prevent further enemies from appearing.
As for the Altean army, have them go around the mountain instead of using the drawbridge (a key is obtained if Marth visits the nearby village), due to the high number of enemies. Bord can be recruited from the village in the west, however this is in the remake only.
The enemy Dracoknights residing on the mountain will not attack unless the player attacks them first, or uses the nearby Armory. One of them holds a Master Seal. (Note that in lunatic all of the DracoKnights will attack you if any of your characters crosses the bottom left bridge)
After moving up to the northern area where Palla is, visit the village to recruit Julian. Julian can be used to recruit Matthis by speaking to him. Slowly fend off the Dracoknights and Cavaliers, then advance to the boss. Since the boss is a General, it is best to battle him using Linde due to his low RES.
