Richter has managed to really use the whole "Clone Confusion" to his advantage. And Shaft is just so damn trusting about it. Oh, you're a minion? Okay, I'll take you at face value.

When evil spreads across the land, and darkness rises and the monsters roam. When the creatures of the night make beautiful music, and the things that go bump in the night go bump with greater enthusiasm. When the world is in peril and is in need of a hero...

They actually do something heroic.
