Gatekeepers are those few individuals with enough True Faith to consciously survive the presence of God and the Holy Host. These few individuals are the only people that can navigate Gate Space, and not become Awestruck. The Gatekeepers do this on massive ships referred to as Church Carriers.
The first Gatekeeper was Pope Constantine II also known as Father John Rossman. He was the founder of their order, and all Gatekeepers recognize him as a Saint and their second most significant historic figure next to Jesus Christ.
Gatekeepers dress in all white robes embroidered with a silver cross surrounded by a flaming yellow sun. Their order is a position within the church, and they are considered to be on par with Bishops, and are referred to with the honorific Keeper (Keeper Rossman was Pope Constantine II’s title before he was elected Pope in 2150).
