The Former is a massive, serpentine entity with a single glowing eye, and large, spider-like legs protruding from its head. The Former's full size is unknown, though it is significantly larger than Jesse. The Former has only appeared in the Astral Plane, though seemingly in a different region than that inhabited by the Board; when the Former appears, the background of the Astral Plane assumes a dim gray rather than the pure white of the Board.
As its name suggests, the Former is heavily implied to be previously a member or constituent of the Board. Like the Board, the Former is capable of communicating to Jesse but is less coherent, with Jesse only able to make out a few words at a time. After the Former's first appearance, the Board describes it to Jesse as a "dissent," urging her not to listen to it, and asserting that the Former is building an opposition to the Board. In The Foundation, the Former tells Jesse that it was "blamed" by the Board for something, which was the reason for its separation from the Board.
The Former demonstrates the ability to seize control over Altered Items in the same manner as the Board, and when Jesse interacts with these Altered Items, she is relocated to Former's region of the Astral Plane.
