The dilemma I find myself in is introducing secondary characters. Say, this character - a family relative - only exists fleetingly in my story. The first time I introduce the character, I mention it's my aunt/uncle/etc. To exacerbate the problem, it's an Indian story with local names, not easy to remember. Should I replace the names with something easy to remember? If I talk about the character again after 20 pages, it doesn't hurt to re-introduce them with an extra couple of words like "Manu, my aunt."
Any advice is appreciated. Thank you!
