"Red-Haired" Shanks likewise typically referred to as "Red Hair", is the captai of the Red Hair Pirates a member of the 4 Emperors that guideline over the New World He is also a former member of the famous Roger Pirates, the only group to successfully conquer the Grand Line, where he began as a pirate as an apprentice. Significantly, 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 relatively high guy (just under two meters), sturdy, tan-complexioned, and in the prime of his mid-adulthood. Among the Four Emperors previous and present he stands apart as the smallest, most normal-sized without a doubt, the others being different degrees of inhumanly proportioned. True to his epithet, Shanks has clearly red hair: normally depicted across media as deep-crimsonish. Deserving of note is that, uniquely amongst 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 tattooed black or left white). His first-seen hairdo was a directly, middle-parted one kept loosely down to nape length, with much shorter (at eye level), curtained bangs in the front.  In later 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 stated prior bangs.
On his face resides a secondary hallmark: a triple set of vertically parallel, direct scars that pass at an angle over his left (untouched) eye, exposed to have been offered to him by Blackbeard some unidentified time before the start of the series. In addition, Shanks' left arm is missing out on from below the deltoid, an outcome of him saving Luffy from a Sea King when Luffy was a child.
As did his hair, Shanks' face modifications as the manga's art design progresses: at first, it appeared more youthful, a soft jawline tapering down to a little, pointy chin. Its functions were similarly milder than later on depictions and, conserve for his little nose, likewise bigger, most so his plain-black eyes, topped by thin brows.  Later on appearances show him more significantly countenanced, the square of his jaw, the sharper, narrower pair of eyes, and the sculpted, more prominently bridged nose lending him a manlier look. More consistent stays the male's facial hair, however, that he has actually always kept in a neatly thin connection of beard and mustache bristle, forming the starts of a circle beard.

Clothes-wise, Shanks used to use 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 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 simple, white t-shirt half-buttoned up, exposing the middle of his chest and upper abs. Furthermore, Shanks is constantly seen wearing pants cut listed below the knee, collected midway up the shin. Initially (Chapter 1) the set was a slightly loose, plain-brown one with golden buttons down the external leg sides, and with a red sash around his waist to keep his shirt tucked within. Later on, he is seen using a different, slightly baggier pair of trousers with a green-yellow, indiscernible floral pattern (now revealing plenty leg hair), and his 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. After the Additional hints timeskip, he is at some point seen using different pants yet again, light-colored with a rose pattern.
