Ken Awo - The ancient mission of the Brotherhood of the Shadows was to master every aspect of the golem and its interactions with humans. In modern times, they have become experts in artificial intelligence, cybernetics, the human genome, genetic engineering, CLONING etc: every aspect of the "science of the double". Many are elite scientists, being paid vast salaries. They desire to produce a perfect simulacrum of a human being, like the "replicants" of the film Blade Runner. Many of them see it as purely a scientific endeavor, but the higher ranks of the Brotherhood have very different aims.
They want to create 1) "Manchurian Candidates" (perfect, disposable assassins), 2) "doubles" to take the place of leaders in dangerous situations or to produce airtight alibis for leaders while they are engaging in nefarious activities elsewhere, 3) simulacra of soldiers who can be sent on the most dangerous missions, 4) doppelgangers for use in psy-ops against chosen targets (nothing is more psychologically disturbing than to suddenly encounter your own double), 5) young clones of old, dying members of the Old World Order into which their minds can be transferred so that they can be "reborn" in their prime.
