>> From the two poems we've seen so far, Variel's adaptation appears to be physical in nature; <<

As far as I've seen, yes, it's about compensating for physical hazards. Although if someone hit her with psychotropic substances, she'd probably adapt to that too. Mindreading, maybe or maybe not.

>> she has trouble dealing with a social and emotional situation elsewhere. <<

True. She doesn't have a lot of emotional resilience at this stage.

>> Or is that just a matter of gaining experience and poise as she matures? <<

Possibly so. It depends on her opportunities and the people around her. I think she'd be fine as part of a team, but might well not be very adventurous on her own. If she's got someone to lean on for guidance, she'd probably work better.
