However is a conjuction or a conjuctive adverb. A pronoun is a noun that takes the place of another noun -think he, she, it.

A conjunction serves to connect words, phrases, clauses or sentences.

Despite can either be a preposition or a noun:
–preposition
1. in spite of; notwithstanding.
–noun
2. contemptuous treatment; insult.
3. malice, hatred, or spite.


However is either an adverb or a conjuction:
–adverb
1. nevertheless; yet; on the other hand; in spite of that: We have not yet won; however, we shall keep trying.
2. to whatever extent or degree; no matter how: However much you spend, I will reimburse you.
3. in whatever manner: We will allow you to travel however you please.
4. how; how under the circumstances: However did you manage?
–conjunction
5. in whatever way, manner, or state: Arrange your hours however you like.
