Background:
    Notusha was born in the trees deep in the eastern lands. His society's lifestyle taught him many tactics of clever defense and devastating, lightning-quick strikes. He didn't fear killing or death, being as he saw so much of it in his strange culture. When he came of age, he was given the black clothing he wears now and told how to repair or reproduce it to a minor extent. He then set aside his gi and left his homeland, unwittingly destined to be infused with many dark deeds…..

Good looking profile ye got there

Just some things to point out about the wakizashi:

  1. It symbolized a samurai's honour; a shinobi would not carry such a weapon
  2. A wakizashi is not 'less than a sword' any more than a short sword is.

1 Part of an unrevealed history, he picks it off of one of his opponents, and, since he has had it for a while, has sentimental ties to it, especially since he lost his own main weapon in that battle..

2 Wakazashi can range many sizes, being as it's name(correct me if I misunderstand) means something to the effect of side-sword. It can be anywhere from a long knife to a fully fledged sword..
