"Red-Haired" Shanks likewise commonly understood as "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 started 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 inadvertently consumed by Luffy.
ContentsAppearanceEdit Shanks is a reasonably tall man (simply under 2 meters), well-built, tan-complexioned, and in the prime of his mid-adulthood. Among the 4 Emperors previous and present he stands out as the smallest, most normal-sized without a doubt, the others being different degrees of inhumanly proportioned. Real to his epithet, Shanks has distinctly red hair: typically illustrated throughout media as deep-crimsonish. Worthwhile of note is that, uniquely 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 hairstyle was a directly, middle-parted one kept loosely down to nape length, with shorter (at eye level), curtained bangs in the front.  In later looks (at 10 years older), he is revealed with a little longer hair, wavier and more slicked back than before except for some few strands he lets fall down the sides of his face, pressed further sideward than stated 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, exposed to have been given to him by Blackbeard some unknown time prior to the start of the series. Furthermore, Shanks' left arm is missing out on from listed 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 design advances: at first, it appeared more youthful, a soft jawline tapering down to a small, pointy chin. Its features were likewise milder than later representations and, conserve for his small nose, also larger, most so his plain-black click here eyes, topped by thin brows.  Later appearances show him more significantly countenanced, the square of his jaw, the sharper, narrower set of eyes, and the sculpted, more plainly bridged nose providing him a manlier look. More consistent stays the man's facial hair, however, that he has always kept in a neatly thin connection of beard and mustache stubble, forming the beginnings of a circle beard.

Clothes-wise, Shanks used to use a specific straw hat gotten from Gol D. Roger (his previous captain) that was associated with his image 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 always seen wearing trousers cut listed below the knee, gathered midway up the shin. At First (Chapter 1) the set 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 within. In the future, he is seen wearing a different, mildly baggier pair of pants with a green-yellow, indiscernible floral pattern (now revealing plenty leg hair), and his shirt is left out of his sash, which is now shown 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 again, light-colored with a rose pattern.
