"Red-Haired" Shanks likewise commonly called "Red Hair", is the captai of the Red Hair Pirates a member of the 4 Emperors that rule over the New World He is also a previous member of the famous Roger Pirates, the only group to successfully conquer the Grand Line, where he began as a pirate as an apprentice. Notably, 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 mistakenly eaten by Luffy.
ContentsAppearanceEdit Shanks is a fairly high male (just under two meters), durable, tan-complexioned, and in the prime of his mid-adulthood. Amongst the 4 Emperors past and present he stands apart as the tiniest, most normal-sized without a doubt, the others being various degrees of inhumanly proportioned. True to his epithet, Shanks has noticeably red hair: generally depicted across media as deep-crimsonish. Deserving of note is that, distinctively among 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 (rather of tattooed black or left white). His first-seen hairdo was a directly, middle-parted one kept loosely down to nape length, with shorter (at eye level), curtained bangs in the front.  In later appearances (at ten years older), he is revealed with a little longer hair, wavier and more slicked back than prior to except for some few strands he lets fall down the sides of his face, pushed farther sideward than stated prior bangs.
On his face lives a secondary hallmark: a triple set of vertically parallel, direct scars that pass at an angle over his left (unblemished) eye, revealed to have been given to him by Blackbeard some unknown time before the start of the series. Furthermore, Shanks' left arm is missing out on from below the deltoid, a result of him saving Luffy from a Sea King when Luffy was a child.
As did his hair, Shanks' face changes as the manga's art style progresses: at first, it appeared more younger, more info a soft jawline tapering down to a little, pointy chin. Its functions were likewise milder than later on representations and, conserve for his little nose, also larger, most so his plain-black eyes, topped by thin brows.  Later appearances show him more considerably 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 consistent stays the guy's facial hair, however, that he has constantly kept in a nicely thin connection of beard and mustache bristle, forming the starts of a circle beard.

Clothes-wise, Shanks used to wear a specific straw hat acquired from Gol D. Roger (his former captain) that was synonymous with his image up until he passed it on to Luffy. Otherwise, his attire always includes a sweeping long, sleeveless black cape with a high collar (in the anime bearing a lighter, gray inside), and under it a simple, white shirt half-buttoned up, exposing the middle of his chest and upper abs. Additionally, Shanks is always seen using trousers cut listed below the knee, gathered midway up the shin. At First (Chapter 1) the pair was a slightly loose, plain-brown one with golden buttons down the outer leg sides, and with a red sash around his waist to keep his shirt tucked inside. Later on, he is seen using a various, slightly baggier pair of pants 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 ideal side. Lastly, his shoes consists of easy brown sandals, their soles gray-studded. After the timeskip, he is at some point seen wearing different trousers yet again, light-colored with a rose pattern.
