A quick, simple and possibly silly question. but I ask just to get an idea. When it comes to Bodyguards or other support characters, is it fair to assume the Reader will assume that said people are there unless specified differently. As an example, Kristol has three bodyguards, one she dubbed protector, and two veteran/captains that her father assigned to her, I don't need to keep writing. "Kristol approached the tent, followed by Name 1, Name 2 and Name 3" or "..... Followed by her bodyguards," , that is general assumed right.
