One minor note: I think that strictly speaking your angry wizard shouldn’t be able to cast spells while dual-wielding if they don’t have warcaster, but the rules about drawing weapons are so vague and confusing that you could probably just sheathe and unsheathe your sword every turn or something silly like that. You pick it up at the beginning of your next turn and repeat. If you issue no commands, the creature only defends itself against hostile creatures.
