"Red-Haired" Shanks likewise typically called "Red Hair", is the captai of the Red Hair Pirates a member of the Four Emperors that guideline over the New World He is also a former member of the famous Roger Pirates, the only group to effectively 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 found the Gomu Gomu no Mi that was mistakenly eaten by Luffy.
ContentsAppearanceEdit Shanks is a relatively high guy (just under 2 meters), durable, tan-complexioned, and in the prime of his mid-adulthood. Among the 4 Emperors previous and present he stands out as the tiniest, most normal-sized without a doubt, the others being various degrees of inhumanly proportioned. True to his epithet, Shanks has clearly red hair: generally 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 straight, middle-parted one kept loosely down to nape length, with much shorter (at eye level), curtained bangs in the front.  In later looks (at 10 years older), he is shown with a little longer hair, wavier and more slicked back than before except for some couple of strands he lets fall down the sides of his face, pressed further sideward than said prior bangs.
On his face lives a secondary trademark: a triple set of vertically parallel, linear scars that pass at an angle over his left (unblemished) eye, revealed to have actually been provided to him by Blackbeard some unknown time prior to the start of the series. Additionally, Shanks' left arm is missing out on 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 progresses: 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 eyebrows.  Later looks show him more noticeably countenanced, the square of his jaw, the sharper, narrower pair of eyes, and the chiseled, more plainly bridged nose lending him a manlier look. More consistent stays the male's facial hair, however, that he has actually constantly kept in a neatly thin connection of beard and mustache bristle, forming the beginnings of a circle beard.

Clothes-wise, Shanks used to use a specific 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 outfit constantly includes a sweeping long, sleeveless black cape with a high collar (in the anime bearing a lighter, gray within), and under it an easy, 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 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 within. In the future, he is seen wearing a various, mildly baggier set of pants with a green-yellow, indiscernible flower pattern (now revealing plenty leg hair), and his t-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 Click to find out more some point seen wearing various pants yet once again, light-colored with a rose pattern.
