''El Filibusterismo'' (translated as ''"The Filibustering"'', or more loosely ''Subversion'') is the sequel to Jose Rizal's ''Literature/NoliMeTangere''. Thirteen years after Crisostomo Ibarra's apparent death, a mysterious man named Simoun appears, quickly gaining favor with the Spanish rulers and high society of 19th century Manila. Called ''Cardinal Moreno'' (Dark Cardinal), he was the informal adviser to the colony's Captain-General and tours the islands apparently as a jewel merchant. Basilio, the young boy from the previous book, is now a medical student at the college of Ateneo, and he gets drawn into a web of lies and deceit.

* AlliterativeName: Placido Penitente, the student who eventually joins Simoun's cause.


Added DiffLines:

* MeaningfulName: Placido Penitente. "Placid" means calm and peaceful, while "penitent" means sorrowful and regretful. This ties with the fact that Placido is introduced as a very sorrowful character. This wordplay is, in fact, even alluded to in-universe by Padre Millon himself.
