Tiefling Heritages: Rakshasa-Spawn for D&D 5th Edition

A special thanks to +Benjamin Bach  and +Brutorz Bill for essential input on this one.

My conversion of Pathfinder's Blood of Fiends to DnD 5th Edition draws to an end:

Raskshasa-Spawn Tiefling

(Unless otherwise noted, all traits are per the 5th Ed. Player's Handbook)

Ability Score Increase. Your Dexterity score increases by 2, and your Charisma score increases by 1.

Wicked Resistance. You have resistance to psychic damage.

Wicked Legacy. You know the thaumaturgy cantrip.  Once you reach 3rd level, you can cast the charm person spell once per day as a 2nd-level spell.  Once you reach 5th level, you can also cast the detect thoughts spell once per day.  Charisma is your spellcasting ability for these spells. 

Beastbrood Feat

Prerequisite: Rakshasa-Spawn Tiefling

• When a creature targets you with the grapple attack action, you have advantage on Strength (Acrobatics) and Dexterity (Acrobatics) checks to resist being seized and to escape a grapple.

• When a creature scores a critical hit against you with a weapon dealing bludgeoning or slashing damage, roll 1d6 and reduce the damage by the number you rolled.

Do these not exist anywhere in any official WOTC publications? Will you be putting together your own book on RPG Now, so we can throw money at you?
