"Red-Haired" Shanks likewise typically known as "Red Hair", is the captai of the Red Hair Pirates a member of the 4 Emperors that guideline over the New World He is also a former member of the famous Roger Pirates, the only group to successfully conquer the Grand Line, where he began as a pirate as an apprentice. Significantly, he is the pirate who inspired Monkey D. Luffy to go on his journey as a pirate, and his crewmate Lucky Roux discovered the Gomu Gomu no Mi that was inadvertently eaten by Luffy.
ContentsAppearanceEdit Shanks is a relatively high man (simply under 2 meters), well-built, tan-complexioned, and in the prime of his mid-adulthood. Among the 4 Emperors past and present he sticks out as the tiniest, most normal-sized by far, the others being numerous degrees of inhumanly proportioned. Real to his epithet, Shanks has definitely red hair: generally portrayed across media as deep-crimsonish. Worthwhile of note is that, distinctively among all characters yet seen, even ones with equivalent hair tone, Shanks' hair is the sole one filled with grayscale in the black-and-white manga (rather of inked black or left white). His first-seen hairdo was a straight, middle-parted one kept loosely down to nape length, with shorter (at eye level), curtained bangs in the front.  In later on appearances (at 10 years older), he is shown with slightly longer hair, wavier and more slicked back than prior to except for some couple of hairs he lets fall down the sides of his face, pushed further sideward than said prior bangs.
On his face lives a secondary hallmark: a triple set of vertically parallel, linear scars that pass at an angle over his left (unblemished) eye, revealed to have actually been offered to him by Blackbeard some unknown time prior to the start of the series. Furthermore, Shanks' left arm is missing from listed below the deltoid, a result 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: initially, it appeared more vibrant, a soft jawline tapering down to a small, pointy chin. Its functions were similarly milder than later representations and, save for his little nose, also bigger, most so his plain-black eyes, topped by thin brows.  Later on looks show him more significantly countenanced, the square of his jaw, the sharper, narrower pair of eyes, and the sculpted, more prominently bridged nose providing him a manlier look. More consistent stays the guy's facial hair, however, that he has actually always kept in a nicely thin connection of beard and mustache stubble, forming the starts of a circle beard.

Clothes-wise, Shanks used to use a certain straw hat gotten from Gol D. Roger (his former captain) that was associated with his image up until he passed it on to Luffy. Otherwise, his attire always consists of a sweeping long, sleeveless black cape with a high collar (in the anime bearing a lighter, gray inside), and under it a basic, white shirt half-buttoned up, exposing the middle of his chest and upper abs. In addition, Shanks is always seen using pants cut listed below the knee, collected midway up the shin. Initially (Chapter 1) the set was a somewhat loose, plain-brown one with golden buttons down the outer leg sides, and with a red sash around his waist to keep his t-shirt tucked within. In the future, he is seen using a different, slightly baggier pair of trousers with a green-yellow, indiscernible floral pattern (now exposing plenty leg hair), and his shirt is left out of his sash, which is now revealed holding his saber at his right side. Lastly, his footwear includes simple brown shoes, their soles gray-studded. After the timeskip, he is at some point seen wearing various trousers yet again, light-colored with a rose pattern.
