"Red-Haired" Shanks likewise typically 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. Especially, 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 fairly high male (just under two meters), durable, tan-complexioned, and in the prime of his mid-adulthood. Amongst the Four Emperors past and present he sticks out as the tiniest, most normal-sized by far, the others being different degrees of inhumanly proportioned. Real to his epithet, Shanks has clearly red hair: usually depicted throughout media as deep-crimsonish. Worthwhile of note is that, distinctively among all characters yet seen, even ones with comparable 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 shorter (at eye level), curtained bangs in the front.  In later appearances (at 10 years older), he is revealed with somewhat longer hair, wavier and more slicked back than before other than for some couple of hairs he lets fall down the sides of his face, pressed further 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, exposed to have actually been offered 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 depictions and, save for his small 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 always kept in a neatly thin connection Click here for info of beard and mustache stubble, forming the beginnings of a circle beard.

Clothes-wise, Shanks used to wear a certain 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 constantly consists of a sweeping long, sleeveless black cape with a high collar (in the anime bearing a lighter, gray within), and under it an easy, white t-shirt half-buttoned up, exposing the middle of his chest and upper abs. Furthermore, Shanks is constantly seen using trousers cut below the knee, collected halfway up the shin. Initially (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, he is seen using a various, mildly baggier pair of pants with a green-yellow, indiscernible flower pattern (now exposing plenty leg hair), and his t-shirt is overlooked of his sash, which is now revealed holding his saber at his best side. Finally, his footwear consists of simple brown sandals, their soles gray-studded. After the timeskip, he is at some point seen wearing various trousers yet once again, light-colored with a rose pattern.
