Perhaps the most iconic 'gate guardian' I have ever read of is the North Wind. [From George MacDonald's 'At the Back of the North Wind']. Her greatest task, guarding one of the gates of heaven that leads to eternal joy, is also her greatest sorrow. She cannot have even one glimpse of the gate , for the gate is at her back, let alone see the land of delight that she guards the passage to.
