    Like, for me, it's a bit too terrifying. Also, Hosts sounds much more on False side, as they want to spread the Contagion, not limit it.
    Think of it this way,if the contagion does to the gauntlet the oposite of what the hosts want,they will want to oppose it. Besides,they have their uses as spies and foot soldiers also, remember Ariadne? Imagine what she can do either for the sworn and the false. An host of her level is ticking time bom,and a smart sworn could leave such a bomb to explode right on their enemies doors

    Their drive is to rebirth their progenitor. It's possible some will gain the intelligence to realize the Contagion may be aspects of their progenitor sending instructions on how to do so, thus join the Rosetta Society. The Cryptocracy offers power and knowledge that most groups wouldn't refuse. Something like the Theseans could be appealing to particularly powerful and torn members like Ariadne, who wish to try to change themselves to avoid their destiny, but could also be appealing to hosts who perhaps think changing what they are might be a better way to bring back the Spinner Hag, Carrion Prince or whoever.

    I think they'd certainly lean towards the False but wouldn't be limited to it, especially once you get to the point where they're intelligent enough to gain some independence and agency.

    check it out!
    Host Edges for the Fervor Vector

    • Purification
    Hosts are disrupting force through and through,they are about building power by absorbing themselve into an
    terrible amalgamation. with this Edge,they can waive the Willpower cost of purification,instead they sacrifice another
    Host to their progenitor torning his enemy apart to shed the Condition.
    •• Divine Revelation
    Ironically,many of the more lucid Hosts place value in loyalty. After all,when you are a god-fragment trying to recuparate your
    former glory,it pays to have loyal helpers. By spending one more Willpower point,the Host can inflict the Mesmerized condition
    on the target of this Vector,as well as the normal effect of the power.
    ••• Cleansing Flame
    The Hosts,remember what they once were. Not in their minds,but in their flesh and bone. When they reach for the Heavens
    to wield the Sacred fire,they are indeed calling on the remains of their Progenitor. With Cleansing Flame
    they can infect the victims of this power with a Shard of themselves.
    •••• Modern Miracle
    Hosts are in many ways,profanity given shape. They corrupt the Gauntlet,the sacred barrier between the Flesh and Shadow.
    therefore they can choose to affect targets on both sides of the Gauntlet with their Miracles.
    ••••• Godhead
    Make no mistake,Hosts were once Gods,they were monsters and scavengers and plagues,but above all else,they were Gods.
    And now,it's time for them to reclaim their ancient glory and birthright.
    When they use godhead,they can affect te Gauntlet without any Essence cost,and they can choose to harm the Gauntlet in one turn
    as if they were harming it for a month.

    Host Edges for the Authority Vector.
    • Surveillance
    Hosts are everywhere,or at least,their shards are. They know their away around tehcnology,they know how to watch
    and listen for what's necessary. And sometimes,they ca brute-force their away into information instead of using finesse
    Hosts replace Intelligence with Strenght for the Roll. Furthermore,they can spend Essence to gain Successes,each 5 Essence
    points grants the Host one automatic Sucess.
    •• The Boss Is In
    When you see the monstruos,terrifying and awe-inspiring monster enter the room,you know the Boss is indeed In.
    The Host can choose one member of the organization he is taking control of,that member will always have a Perfect impression
    of the Host for the rest of the session.
    ••• Plutomancy
    Money may seem useless for something as uncontrollable as a Host,but even they may use a litttle green to make things easier for themselves
    Furthermore,they can consume each other's money in very real way. By sacrificing and devouring another shard,the Host may gain an extra Plutomancy point.
    •••• Panopticon
    The Hosts were once parts of beings who could see into may layers of reality,include the abodes of other beings of similar power
    if the Host uses the senses of another Host,he can extend the period of this power to 72 hours.
    ••••• The Big Lie
    Some people are never the same after seeing the might of a Host. The host can choose a person who has heard the lie,that person
    will forever believe the lie,no matter what proof he sees of the contrary.

    'Contagion' is broad term over vastly different regional events that break base reality in area, in some way. They are only put together as it's seem all those different effects are 'spreading' like a disease in various ecologies they start in - going even to mortals and other supernatural beings.

    For now we have those shown as example Contagions:
    • Parallel universe bleeds of beings and places ( Edinburgh, New Zealand )
    • Vampires rising blood addiction and light sensitivity in all around them ( Edinburgh )
    • Suicidal depression sticking to every self-conscious being ( Odense )
    • Ghosts becoming material, permanently ( San Francisco )
    • Corruption that makes you immortal and/or mutated ( Kyoto )
    • And few other I did not read yet...
    My own example idea: Contagion of Being, that slowly erase ephemeral and physical beings from reality.
