okapi

Here is my best explanation:

'animal' is the definition.
(thesaurus)

'all right for a greek character' is the wordplay.
'all right' becomes 'ok' ('ok' can be a synonym of 'all right').
'for' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'greek character' becomes 'pi' (letter from the Greek alphabet).
'ok'+'a'+'pi'='OKAPI'

'to have' acts as a link.
