"Red-Haired" Shanks likewise frequently referred to as "Red Hair", is the captai of the Red Hair Pirates a member of the Four Emperors that rule over the New World He is likewise a former member of the legendary Roger Pirates, the only group to effectively dominate the Grand Line, where he started as a pirate as an apprentice. Especially, he is the pirate who influenced Monkey D. Luffy to go on his journey as a pirate, and his crewmate Lucky Roux found the Gomu Gomu no Mi that was mistakenly consumed by Luffy.
ContentsAppearanceEdit Shanks is a fairly tall guy (just under 2 meters), sturdy, tan-complexioned, and in the prime of his mid-adulthood. Amongst the Four Emperors past and present he sticks out as the smallest, most normal-sized without a doubt, the others being different degrees of inhumanly proportioned. True to his epithet, Shanks has clearly red hair: normally depicted throughout media as deep-crimsonish. Deserving of note is that, uniquely amongst all characters yet seen, even ones with similar hair tone, Shanks' hair is the sole one filled with grayscale in the black-and-white manga (instead of tattooed black or left white). His first-seen hairstyle was a directly, middle-parted one kept loosely down to nape length, with much shorter (at eye level), curtained bangs in the front.  In later looks (at ten years older), he is shown with a little longer hair, wavier and more slicked back than before other than for some couple of strands he lets fall down the sides of his face, pushed farther sideward than said prior bangs.
On his face resides a secondary trademark: a triple set of vertically parallel, linear scars that pass at an angle over his left (untouched) eye, revealed to have been offered to him by Blackbeard some unknown time before the start of the series. Additionally, Shanks' left arm is missing out on from listed below the deltoid, an outcome of him conserving Luffy from a Sea King when Luffy was a child.
As did his hair, Shanks' face changes as the manga's art design advances: at first, it appeared more younger, a soft jawline tapering down to a small, pointy chin. Its functions were likewise milder than later on representations and, save for his little nose, also bigger, most so his plain-black eyes, topped by thin eyebrows.  Later on looks reveal him more significantly countenanced, the square of his jaw, the sharper, narrower pair of eyes, and the chiseled, more prominently bridged nose lending him a manlier appearance. More constant stays the guy's facial hair, however, that he has actually constantly kept in a nicely thin connection of beard and mustache stubble, forming the beginnings of a circle beard.

Clothes-wise, Shanks utilized to wear a particular straw hat obtained from Gol D. Roger (his previous captain) that was synonymous with his image till he passed it on to Luffy. Otherwise, his attire constantly includes a sweeping long, sleeveless black cape with a high collar (in the anime bearing a lighter, gray inside), and under it an easy, white shirt half-buttoned up, exposing the middle of his chest and upper abs. Furthermore, Shanks is always seen wearing pants cut listed below the knee, collected midway up the shin. Initially (Chapter 1) the set was a slightly loose, plain-brown one with golden buttons down the external leg sides, and with a red sash around his waist to keep his shirt tucked inside. Later, he is seen using a different, slightly baggier pair of trousers with a green-yellow, indiscernible floral pattern (now revealing plenty leg hair), and his t-shirt is neglected of his sash, which is now revealed holding his saber at his right side. Lastly, his footwear includes basic brown shoes, their soles gray-studded. After the timeskip, he is at some point seen wearing different trousers yet once again, light-colored with a rose pattern.
