In ancient Greek Arete could mean a lot of things. It could refer to "excellence" of any kind. It could mean "moral virtue" in how you lived life. Heroes often were said to have it and some link it with "bravery." More often, it was used as "effectiveness." Finally, it was sometimes used to link with the idea of "human knowledge" as in "virtue/arete is knowledge."
When looking at it with the idea of "excellence" though, the Ancient Greeks would probably have linked with the "fulfillment of purpose or function: the act of living up to one's full potential." (mostly drawn from wikipedia if you want to read the full thing).
Excellence. Mortal Virtue. Bravery. Effectiveness. Knowledge. Living to one's full potential. A worthy goal to strive for, or so Kyle thinks.
Arete is an Adren, Black Fury, Homid. He is also male. This means he will never rise above Adren rank and is lower in position than all female members of his tribe, including cubs. Every day he looks to analyze how to be better. A better fighter, a better Theurge, a better Fury, etc.
Arete is also an excellent craftsman and fetish maker, working mostly with jewelry.
RP Notes: Alexandros as a boy's name is of Greek origin meaning "man's defender or warrior"
Hera also had is as an epithet of Alexandros which would roughly be "Defender of Men."
Kyle doesn't have meaning, I just liked the name.
