I will split this up into both the Conquest and Birthright units. If you know one I missed, please leave a comment.

Fire Emblem Fates Birthright Recruitable Characters

Mozu
You can get Mozu during the first Paralogue mission you get called “Tragic Start”. You need to get to her with your unit and talk to her. She is a really weak Villager unit that uses a spear. She starts off weak but thanks to hear Skill she has a lot of potential. Her skill gives her an increased chance to get stats up per level.
Hinoka
You get Hinoka back during Chapter 8 if you talk to her with your character. Hinoka has the Darting Blow Skill and it increases her chance to use a follow up attack when she initiates attacks.
Setusunna
This is an archer unit that comes with Hinoka if you recruit her. Setsuna starts with a +2 Skill buff.
Azama
Azama is a magic user that starts with heal, you get him if you recruit Hinoka. Azama has the skill Miracle and it will prevent him in dying in one shot(HP will drop to 1 in place of a lethal blow).
Hayoto
You will get Hayato after you beat the Chapter 8 story mission. Hayato is a Diviner with a +2 to Magic Skill.
Oboro
You can get Oboro during the Chapter 9 main story mission. After a turn in the battle Oboro and Hinata will both appear. You will need to take two turns in order to talk to both of them with your character. Oboro starts off with two Skills, Seal Defense and Swap. Seal Defense which reduces enemy defense after combat ad Swap which lets you switch places with an ally right next to you.
Hinata
You get Hinata the same way you get Oboro. Hinata is a Samurai and he starts off with two Skills. He has Vantage, which allows him to strike first when his HP is below 50% and Duelist Blow, which gives you +30 Avo when you start combat with him.
Takumi
You get Takumi during the chapter 10 Story mission. He is an archer and you will need to use Azura’s sing on him to have him join you. Takumi comes with +2 Skill and Quick Draw, which makes him do more damage when he initiates combat.
Reina
Reina is a Kinshi Knight, basically a Pegasus archer. You can get him during the Chapter 11 Story mission by talking to him with your character. He starts with Darting Blow and Camaraderie. Darting Blow gives him a higher chance to follow up when he initiates combat and Camaraderie heals up to 10% HP of units next to him.
Child
When you get married to someone in Fire Emblems Fates, you will have a kid and that kid will eventually help you fight. The Child will be the second Paralogue Quest you will get and all you need to do is protect them. In order to get married you need to get a rank S support character that you can marry.

This is from Paralogue Mission 15. In order to unlock it you will need to get Subaki to S rank with another character. I used Hinoka and Subaki to get the rank up. This is Subaki’s daughter and she is a Sky Knight like him. She starts with four skills, Rally Speed, Darting Blow, Air Superiority and Camaraderie. This mission is difficult so be sure to save before you try it.
