Band of Mercenaries is Chapter 3 of Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade.
On the tenth day after leaving the plains, Lyn's group comes upon a village that has been ransacked by bandits. While examining the place, Lyn finds Florina, her friend and a Pegasus Knight. She is being hassled by two bandits because her Pegasus landed on one of them. Lyn tries to settle things, but the bandits become upset and attack. After defeating them, Florina explains why she was there, to gain experience as a mercenary, and Sain recommends that she and Wil join their group. They both agree.
