"Red-Haired" Shanks also frequently understood 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 previous member of the legendary Roger Pirates, the only group to effectively dominate the Grand Line, where he started as a pirate as an apprentice.

ContentsAppearanceEdit Shanks is a fairly tall male (simply under two meters), sturdy, tan-complexioned, and in the prime of his mid-adulthood. Amongst the Four Emperors previous and present he stands apart as the smallest, most normal-sized without a doubt, the others being numerous degrees of inhumanly proportioned. True to his epithet, Shanks has distinctly red hair: normally portrayed throughout media as deep-crimsonish. Worthwhile of note is that, uniquely amongst all characters yet seen, even ones with similar 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 much shorter (at eye level), curtained bangs in the front.  In later appearances (at 10 years older), he is shown with a little longer hair, wavier and more slicked back than prior to except for some couple of strands he lets fall down the sides of his face, pushed further sideward than said 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, revealed to have actually been offered 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 Check out here 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 advances: initially, it appeared more vibrant, a soft jawline tapering down to a small, pointy chin. Its functions were likewise milder than later representations and, save for his little nose, also bigger, most so his plain-black eyes, topped by thin eyebrows.  Later looks show him more noticeably countenanced, the square of his jaw, the sharper, narrower pair of eyes, and the chiseled, more plainly bridged nose lending him a manlier look. More consistent stays the male's facial hair, however, that he has actually constantly kept in a neatly thin connection of beard and mustache bristle, forming the beginnings of a circle beard.

Clothes-wise, Shanks used to wear a certain straw hat obtained from Gol D. Roger (his previous captain) that was synonymous with his image till 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 an easy, white t-shirt half-buttoned up, exposing the middle of his chest and upper abs. Furthermore, Shanks is always seen using 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 outer 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 exposing plenty leg hair), and his shirt is overlooked of his sash, which is now shown holding his saber at his ideal side. Finally, his shoes consists of basic brown sandals, their soles gray-studded. After the timeskip, he is at some point seen using different trousers yet again, light-colored with a rose pattern.
