I would appreciate the wisdom of my fellow SFFers. So, on my final draft of Act 2 or my first story, and I have been stuck at the same point for about a week. It's how to introduce the 'cast' of this particular act. The first segment of chapter 1 has already portrayed probably the main character (an amnesiac) seeing herself in the mirror. But she's about to walk into an adjoining room with some fellow amnesiacs, although they have been up and about a while longer and already know each others names. But for the 2nd part of the chapter, I am switching perspective to a broadly omniscient narrative where the other characters are deep in debate. Do I call them by their names outright, or do I label them with only the rough characteristics that the main character (and the reader) has observed so far? i.e. the big angry one, the quiet timid one in red, etc.
