$h i s$ is a possessive pronoun.

Adverbs are used mostly to describe $v e r b s$ which are the $a c t i o n$ in the sentence, but they can describe other components of the sentence structure.

#### Explanation:

$h i s$ socks, $h i s$ idea, $h i s$ mother, all describe $o b j e c t s$ that belong to him. The pronoun is a result of referencing a subject indirectly. See below:

$H i s$ dream in tatters, Neil decided to return to the drawing board.

The possessive pronoun $h i s$ is followed immediately by the object $\mathrm{dr} e a m$ and later the subject $N e i l$.
