Gatekeepers. It is their duty to guard the portals between the worlds until time itself ends. There are many other worlds; each is like a splinter shaven from this reality; for this world is the most complete.
Without Gatekeepers, chaos would ensue as the portals between the worlds would become vast gateways for the worlds’ armies to meet each other in a war of power that could destroy not only this world, but many others as well.
That is why, eons ago, the Gates family was charged with stewardship over the portals. The job is difficult, dangerous, and fun. The Gates must be very good diplomats, know where all the portals are – for they are all over the gatehouse – and be very patient with strange creatures in the living room and dragons burning the pizza.
Other than having a home that has portals to other worlds and working with hundreds of different races on a regular basis, Gatekeepers are not that different from the rest of humanity. Over the years, though, they have developed a few small powers from their centuries of work, but they are subtle, small, and not very noticeable. No one in the family can fly, turn invisible, or anything like the superheroes in the comics that children read.
