Shaft is one of Dracula most trusted apprentices, behind only Death. Desperate to revive Dracula over and over again, he protects the remains from the Belmont clan by scattering them. Once, after Dracula's defeat under Richter, he hid Dracula's remains in Galamoth's Castle. He then possessed Richter, revived Dracula, and stood guard. After Alucard defeated Shaft, he destroyed Dracula once more and freed Richter. Just like his master, he is immortal, so he constantly goes to his work.
