Who is Shanks?
Red Haired Shanks was the previous owner of Luffy’s straw hat and the main reason Luffy became a pirate. Shanks is the captain of the Red Haired pirates and one of the Four Emperors of the New World.
He began his journey as a pirate apprentice in the Roger Pirates alongside Buggy. The straw hat came from Gol D. Roger, and Shanks was seen wearing it when he was around nine years old.
One of Shanks’s crewmates, Lucky Roux, was the one who found the Gomu Gomu no Mi or Gum Gum fruit that gave Luffy his iconic powers.
