Fantasy Races: 5th Edition Update, part 1

Since I recently professionally expanded into 5th edition of the most popular fantasy pen and paper rpg system, I will post 5th edition conversions for (some of) the races I posted on my blog.

Azan
Azan Traits
Ability Score Increases. Your Intelligence score increases by 2, and your Charisma score increases by 1.
Age. Azan are already fully grown up when they leave their vat. Their natural, unaugmented lifespan seems to be around 100 years, though almost invariably have access to alchemical, medical, and magical treatments that extend their "natural" lifespan into 300 years. Many azan seek to extend their lives beyond that period via more advanced methods.
Alignment. Azan gravitate toward aloof neutrality and various degrees of selfishness.
Size. Azan are small and light, standing around 3 feet tall and weighing approximately 40 pounds. Your size is Small.
Speed. Your base walking speed is 25 feet.
Darkvision. You have superior vision in dark and dim conditions. You can see in dim light within 60 feet as if it were bright light, and in darkness as if it were dim light. You can't discern colors in darkness, only shades of gray.
Apprentice Training. You gain proficiency in one Intelligence or Wisdom-based skill.
Magic Item Handling. You gain an advantage on Intelligence checks made to recognize magic items and recall information pertaining to them, on Charisma checks made during personality conflicts with sentient items, and on saving throws against side effects of magic items you activated, including cursed items.
Magetech. You are proficient in magetech tools. During a long or a short rest, you can use a set of magetech tools to build a simple magetech trinket. Select a cantrip you are aware of when you build the trinket. The trinket can be activated with an action to duplicate effects of that cantrip, using your Intelligence bonus as its spellcasting ability. Once used, the trinket loses its power. You can have single magetech trinket in existence at any one time.
Languages. You can speak Common and Azan.
