In my screenplay I've got a lord whom I want characters to refer to. Sometimes they refer to him by name, as "lord so-and-so," but to mix it up, it seems like sometimes they would also say "the lord" as in "I think it was the lord, in the kitchen, with the candlestick." The problem is that "the lord" feels too much like "the Lord," as though the characters are referring to God, and because this is a screenplay, the words will never be seen by an audience, only heard. Do you have suggestions on how to work around this? Or do you even think it's a problem at all? Maybe it's just in my head.
