Resident Historian Amiel "Cortz" Cortes claimed that the not-so-secret society KKK was the original "Pyramid Scheme" in the Philippines due to the nature of its fractal recruitment style of triangle system and grades. And while heavily stationed in the Luzon-Manila area, the KKK started recruiting members in the Visayas region; primarily around the Iloilo and Negros area due to the Mestizo's wealthy network and connections brought by large profits of estates and plantations, which eventually led to the recruitment of Hiligaynon revolutionary leader Lt.-Gen Pantaleón "León Kilat" Villegas to spread word of an upcoming rebellion on the highly urbanized Cebuano shores that would soon be known as the bloody battle of Tres de Abril.
