"Red-Haired" Shanks also 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 legendary Roger Pirates, the only group to successfully dominate the Grand Line, where he began as a pirate as an apprentice. Notably, he is the pirate who motivated Monkey D. Luffy to go on his journey as a pirate, and his crewmate Lucky Roux discovered the Gomu Gomu no Mi that was unintentionally 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 smallest, most normal-sized by far, the others being numerous degrees of inhumanly proportioned. True to his epithet, Shanks has distinctly red hair: generally portrayed across 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 (rather of inked black or left white). His first-seen hairstyle was a straight, middle-parted one kept loosely down to nape length, with shorter (at eye level), curtained bangs in the front.  In later on looks (at 10 years older), he is shown with somewhat longer hair, wavier and more slicked back than prior to 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, revealed to have 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 Check out the post right here 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 style advances: initially, it appeared more vibrant, a soft jawline tapering down to a little, pointy chin. Its features were likewise milder than later representations and, save for his small nose, also larger, most so his plain-black eyes, topped by thin brows.  Later looks show him more noticeably countenanced, the square of his jaw, the sharper, narrower set of eyes, and the chiseled, more plainly bridged nose lending him a manlier look. More constant stays the guy's facial hair, however, that he has 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 particular straw hat gotten from Gol D. Roger (his previous captain) that was synonymous with his image up until he passed it on to Luffy. Otherwise, his outfit always 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 shirt half-buttoned up, exposing the middle of his chest and upper abs. Additionally, Shanks is constantly seen using trousers cut below the knee, collected halfway up the shin. At First (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 on, he is seen using a various, slightly baggier pair of pants with a green-yellow, indiscernible floral pattern (now exposing plenty leg hair), and his t-shirt is neglected of his sash, which is now revealed holding his saber at his best side. Finally, his footwear includes basic brown shoes, their soles gray-studded. After the timeskip, he is at some point seen wearing different trousers yet once again, light-colored with a rose pattern.
