However, Holo, who would yet live for hundreds of years...

As the title suggests, what does would yet mean in the sentence above? I take the whole sentence as "Holo who lived for hundreds of years," but I fail to see what is the function of would yet in the sentence nor what it means.

For the context, Holo is a wise wolf who is hundreds of years old.


It is a slightly literary way to say "would continue to live for hundreds of years" after some instant of time implicitly understood. More colloquially, "still" might replace "yet."
