It appears to be a multi-layered creature that exists on more than one dimension, living in part in Derry, Maine, and also in part in the "Multiverse" that contains our universe, as well as It's true form (as well as the Turtle). It's true form appears to be a kind of mass of orange light (the "Deadlights") and endless hunger that drives anyone fully exposed to It insane.

In Derry, it has the ability to shape-shift depending on the fears of the person/child it is hunting (and it hunts children in order to devour both their flesh and their emotions of fear), taking forms like a Werewolf and others. It's "true form" in this universe (which is not actually its true form, but merely the closest representation possible in this universe) is that of a giant spider.

It is intelligent and sentient (the book actually has several parts from It's perspective), and uses this intelligence to lure in potential prey.
