The conscription age used to be eighteen until the recent rebellion caused by the Scarlet Guard lowered it to fifteen. All conscripted Reds are put in the front lines and led by high-ranking Silvers.
Apprenticed Reds or Reds who possess conscription waivers are exempted from being drafted. However, if apprenticed Reds lose their masters without completing their training and cannot get new work, they will be eligible for conscription again if they reach conscription age.
