Dhampir Heritages: Jian-Shi-Born Dhampir for D&D 5th Edition

My conversion of Pathfinder's Blood of the Night to DnD 5th Edition begins:

Jian-Shi-Born Dhampir

Jian-Shi-Born Dhampir Traits

Your dhampir character has certain traits deriving from your vampire ancestry. 

Ability Score Increase. Your Dexterity score increases by 1, your Intelligence score increases by 1, and your Strength score increases by 1.

Age. Dampyr mature at the same rate as humans but live about twice as long.

Alignment. Due the conflicting nature of their heritage, they are often neutral. 

Size. Your size is Medium.

Speed. Your base walking speed is 30 feet.

Darkvision. Thanks to your undead heritage, your darkvision has a radius of 60 feet.

FangsYou are proficient with your bite (melee attack, reach 5 ft., one target) which deals 1d4 piercing damage on a hit.  

Blood Drinker.  On the same turn you deal damage with your bite, you may use a bonus action to expend a hit die.  Roll that die and add your Constitution modifier. You regain Hit Points equal to the total.  After you use blood drinker, you can’t use it again until you complete a short or long rest. 

Ru-Shi. Roll 3d6. The resulting number becomes your numerological totem and can never be changed. When you roll your totem number on an attack roll, you may treat the roll as a critical hit.  You may not you this trait again until you have completed a short or long rest.

Languages. You can speak, read, and write Common and three extra language of your choice.
