@SevenSidedDie That's all true, but knowing why would color my answer.

Either make all of the characters secretly inspired, or tell them beforehand that the story is about one of them being special (and, if they're ok with that, then consider if you want them to know which of them is special).

My question is: I don't know what your intended story is about. If it's about one character being better than the rest of the characters, then why hide this fact from the players? If all the characters were Inspired, then you'd have less of a problem—you could have them discover during play that they're unexpectedly powerful.
