Alright for a Greek character to have animal (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

okapi

Here is my best explanation:

'animal' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'alright for a greek character' is the subsidiary indication.

'alright' becomes 'ok' ('OK' can be a synonym of 'alright').

'for' means one lot of letters go next to another.

'greek character' becomes 'pi'.

'ok'+'a'+'pi'='okapi'

'to have' is the link.

(Other definitions for okapi that I've seen before include "Giraffe-like animal with stripes", "Ruminant mammal of Africa", "Wild animal", "Ruminant related to the giraffe", "Giraffe-related mammal", "Mammal related to the giraffe", "Animal, a sort of zebra/giraffe cross", "Giraffe family member", "One of the giraffe family" and "Relative of giraffe".)
