Personality & Traits

General Overview Compared to most Vulcans, V'la is a little more nervous. The confidence is replaced with a hesitance. Aside from that she is almost completely shut-down. She refuses to touch people and avoids emotionally charged situations- which her empathic abilities aid in a great deal.

Ambitions She wants to speak every language she can physically speak, and understand any that she can observe. But, seeing as that is an unrealistic goal, she plans to spend her first career in star fleet learning and using language and her second going home to Vulcan to teach language to children. Then she can retire, if she lives that long.
Hobbies & Interests In her spare time, she studies geology. She collects interesting fossil samples and grows crystals.
Her favorite holosuite program is rock climbing, but she also dances privately.

Personal History She was born on Vulcan with her twin brother Adaarrom. There, her father had troubles fitting into Vulcan society, and so stayed in his mother-in-law's house, a regular stay at home dad. V'la's mother and grandmother raised V'la and Adaarrom as vulcans, with some added difficulties. By age 12, Adaarrom had been institutionalized. V'la was only slightly more successful than her brother.
Terrified of becoming like Adaarrom, she leant further into vulcan emotional suppression techniques. She would never be an expert at telepathy, no matter how good she was at her empathic senses or 'speaking' with other telepaths, because when she touched someone it was like drowning in them. Her grandmother explained it as losing oneself in a meld.
So V'la became obsessed with communicating more effectively. Linguistics was a respected field of study for vulcans. She spoke 15 languages by age 15, and 89 by age 16.
