“Aiming to avoid needless battles, the Altean army decided to cross the central mountain range, thought to be impassable by a large army. Should they go through the Adria Pass, they would reach the palace directly. "Hurry, we cannot let the enemy notice us! We must charge straight through!" Praying for success, Marth and the others walked through the narrow mountain pass. However, despite their prayers, they were attacked by an unexpected enemy in the pass. The northern Kingdom of Aurelis's elite force, which had moved south to aid Akaneia… The "Wolfguard."”

“To avoid needless battle, the Aritian army decided to cross the central mountain range, said to be impassable for a large army. Once they passed Adria Peak, they would be directly at Pales. Hurry, we can't let the enemy spot us! We must charge straight through!! Marth and the others were anxious, but they carried on advancing across the narrow mountain road. But they didn’t expect, in the middle of the cliff, to be ambushed by an unfathomable enemy. They were the northern Kingdom of Orlean's elite squad, the "Wolf Knights”, who had headed south to aid Akaneia.”
—Opening Narration, Mystery of the Emblem
The village on the south-west contains the Lifesphere AND signals retreat to the horsemen and paladin in the north, allowing you to spare the Wolfguard units for recruitment later. You can kill the generic units with them, however, with no consequence.
Also there is an Arms Scroll inside the cave.
