"Red-Haired" Shanks also frequently referred to as "Red Hair", is the captai of the Red Hair Pirates a member of the Four Emperors that rule over the New World He is likewise a former member of the legendary Roger Pirates, the only group to effectively conquer the Grand Line, where he started as a pirate as an apprentice. Especially, he is the pirate who influenced 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 consumed by Luffy.
ContentsAppearanceEdit Shanks is a fairly tall male (simply under two meters), durable, tan-complexioned, and in the prime of his mid-adulthood. Amongst the 4 Emperors past and present he stands out as the tiniest, most normal-sized by far, the others being various degrees of inhumanly proportioned. Real to his epithet, Shanks has definitely red hair: usually illustrated 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 (rather 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 hairs he lets fall down the sides of his face, pushed further sideward than said prior bangs.
On his face lives a secondary hallmark: 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. Furthermore, 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 younger, a soft jawline tapering down to a small, pointy chin. Its functions were similarly milder than later on depictions and, save for his little nose, also bigger, most so his plain-black eyes, topped by thin brows.  Later on appearances reveal him more significantly countenanced, the square of his jaw, the sharper, narrower pair of eyes, and the sculpted, more prominently bridged nose providing him a manlier appearance. More constant stays the man's facial hair, however, that he has actually always kept in a nicely thin connection of beard and mustache stubble, forming the starts of a circle beard.

Clothes-wise, Shanks used to use a certain straw hat acquired from Gol D. Roger (his former captain) that was associated with his image until he passed it on to Luffy. Otherwise, his clothing always consists of a sweeping long, sleeveless black cape with a high collar (in the anime bearing a lighter, gray inside), and under it a basic, white shirt half-buttoned up, exposing the middle of his chest and upper abs. In addition, Shanks is always seen using trousers cut below the knee, gathered halfway up the shin. At First (Chapter 1) the pair 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 t-shirt tucked inside. 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.
