Re: A new Vulcan character????

The Human raised Vulcan might come to realize that they are actually incapable of full Human emotional expression. They can smile at the appropriate times, but not really feel happiness. Or hate, fear, passion (outside of Pon Farr), and love. That when it comes right down to it, their emotional scale is permanently set to "low."
No, it's actually the opposite. Their default setting is not "low" but "uncontrollable." It's not so much that they're all homicidal maniacs inside, just that their emotions are so powerful that they must control them to a greater degree than other species. Some Vulcans are able to express more emotions than others without totally losing it, while others need to keep a tighter leash on their emotions.
