"Red-Haired" Shanks likewise frequently called "Red Hair", is the captai of the Red Hair Pirates a member of the Four Emperors that guideline over the New World He is likewise a former member of the legendary Roger Pirates, the only group to effectively dominate the Grand Line, where he started as a pirate as an apprentice. Notably, he is the pirate who influenced Monkey D. Luffy to go on his journey as a pirate, and his crewmate Lucky Roux discovered the Gomu Gomu no Mi that was accidentally eaten by Luffy.
ContentsAppearanceEdit Shanks is a fairly high male (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 numerous degrees of inhumanly proportioned. True to his epithet, Shanks has distinctly red hair: typically illustrated throughout media as deep-crimsonish. Worthy of note is that, uniquely among 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 (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 on looks (at 10 years older), he is shown with somewhat longer hair, wavier and more slicked back than before except for some few strands he lets fall down the sides of his face, pushed further sideward than stated prior bangs.
On his face lives a secondary hallmark: a triple set of vertically parallel, direct scars that pass at an angle over his left (unblemished) eye, exposed to have actually been provided to him by Blackbeard some unidentified time before the start of the series. Furthermore, Shanks' left arm is missing from 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 style advances: initially, it appeared more youthful, a soft jawline tapering down to a small, pointy chin. Its features were similarly milder than later depictions and, save for his small nose, also larger, most so his plain-black eyes, topped by thin brows.  Later appearances show him more considerably countenanced, the square of his jaw, the sharper, narrower pair of eyes, and the chiseled, more prominently bridged nose providing him a manlier look. More constant stays the guy's facial hair, however, that he has constantly kept in a nicely thin connection of beard and mustache bristle, forming the beginnings of a circle beard.
