"Red-Haired" Shanks likewise frequently known 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 accidentally consumed by Luffy.
ContentsAppearanceEdit Shanks is a fairly tall male (just under two meters), sturdy, tan-complexioned, and in the prime of his mid-adulthood. Amongst the 4 Emperors previous and present he stands apart as the tiniest, most normal-sized without a doubt, the others being different degrees of inhumanly proportioned. True to his epithet, Shanks has noticeably red hair: typically depicted throughout media as deep-crimsonish. Worthwhile of note is that, distinctively 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 hairdo was a straight, middle-parted one kept loosely down to nape length, with much shorter (at eye level), curtained bangs in the front.  In later on looks (at 10 years older), he is shown with a little longer hair, wavier and more slicked back than prior to other than for some few 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 given to him by Blackbeard some unknown time before the start of the series. In addition, 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 modifications as the manga's art design advances: initially, it appeared more younger, a soft jawline tapering down to a small, pointy chin. Its features were similarly milder than later depictions and, save for his small nose, also bigger, most so his plain-black eyes, topped by thin brows.  Later looks reveal him more significantly countenanced, the square of his jaw, the sharper, narrower set of eyes, and the chiseled, more prominently bridged nose lending him a manlier appearance. More consistent stays the male's facial hair, nevertheless, that he has actually always kept in a neatly thin connection of beard and mustache stubble, forming the starts of a circle beard.
