"Red-Haired" Shanks also frequently called "Red Hair", is the captai of the Red Hair Pirates a member of the Four Emperors that rule over the New World He is also a former member of the famous Roger Pirates, the only group to effectively dominate 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 reasonably high man (simply under 2 meters), well-built, tan-complexioned, and in the prime of his mid-adulthood. Amongst 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 distinctly 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 (instead of inked 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 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 strands he lets fall down the sides of his face, pushed further sideward than said prior bangs.
On his face resides a secondary trademark: a triple set of vertically parallel, direct scars that pass at an angle over his left (untouched) eye, revealed to have been given to him by Blackbeard some unidentified time prior to the start of the series. Furthermore, 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 youthful, a soft jawline tapering down to a small, pointy chin. Its features were similarly milder than later on representations and, conserve for his little nose, likewise bigger, most so his plain-black eyes, topped by thin eyebrows.  Later on looks reveal him more markedly 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 male's facial hair, nevertheless, 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 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 outfit constantly includes a sweeping long, sleeveless black cape with a high collar (in the anime bearing a lighter, gray within), and under it a basic, white t-shirt half-buttoned up, exposing the middle of his chest and upper abs. Furthermore, 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 shirt tucked inside. Later on, he is seen using a various, slightly baggier set of trousers with a green-yellow, indiscernible flower pattern (now revealing plenty leg hair), and his shirt is excluded of his sash, which is now shown holding his saber at his right side. Finally, his footwear consists of basic brown shoes, their soles gray-studded. After the timeskip, he is at some point seen using various trousers yet again, light-colored with a rose pattern.
