I'm not sure if this has been discussed before but I understand that there is an election process and Active and Standby roles are elected among the device pair in a VPC. I believe that one of the reasons for having these roles is so that in case of a peer-link failure, the standby is the one that has to shut down it's VPC port-channels to avoid traffic issues but are there other reasons as well? I also think that the active device is the only one "talking" in the STP running on the VPC but I'm not sure about that.
It would be great if someone can consolidate all the responsibilities of the active and/or standby deivce in a VPC pair!
