My entry. She has 4 heads so she can see in all directions, as well as into the soul of all who seek into the magical realms. She is shown here brandishing the keys for the realms of fire and light. The others are attached to her belt chain.

Gifted with unnatural long life, the Keymasters are born with a large vibrant red plume on their heads and glowing white eyes to signify their lineage. They alter and bend the lives of many, offering guidance to champions of the seven elements without bias. Once they reach their third lifetime however their eyes begun to dull to from white to yellow eventually dying out with them at cool red, leaving their keys in the care of the next Keymaster.

Finished. Not pleased with colouring, prefer the black and white, anyway here is the concept.
The Keymaster is based on the idea of a crocodile king. The keys he wears act as his badge of office. He carries with him a staff with an eternal flame, it is here that the birds that follow him around fly into when it is needed to use a key. The keys only become usable once their corresponding bird flies in the flame. I am running on the idea of regeneration, so like a phoenix, a baby bird comes out of the flames as the other dies. The death of the bird makes the corresponding gate appear, and only then can the gatekeeper use the keys around his neck.

Nice work everyone!
The first Dwarf chosen of all the Keymasters, born Beren Gravelchip of the Tribal Mountain clans, he now serves as Keymaster, much to the dismay of the officials in the capital, including himself!

The Keymaster is the only one who can control the seven keys. She is born with the seed of her successor inside of her.

On the eve of the previous keymaster's death, a child is found born at the moment of their passing. This child is raised in secrecy, until at the age of 10 years, they are cast inside the 10 elemental gates as the final trial of the keymaster. Their mortal form is lost inside the tumultuous elemental energy contained inside the gates, and it is only when the child becomes one with the elements that they gain the power to use the keys they inherited. At this point, the remaining life-force of the child is bound within the golden chains and they become the warden of the keys until their death.
This is my first CHoW so I hope I've done everything correctly!
