passion

Here is my best explanation:

'temper' is the definition.
(thesaurus)

'father's heir has one' is the subsidiary indication.
'father's' becomes 'pas' (pa is a kind of father).
'heir' becomes 'son' (I've seen this before).
'has' is an insertion indicator.
'one' becomes 'i' (roman numeral).
'son' going around 'i' is 'sion'.
'pas'+'sion'='passion'
