I doubt you'll do this, but feel free to use your written initiation as an example. ;D
Grew up in a shadowland and studied the strange signs and warped portents that marked it. Studied under the tutelage of a nephwrack queen. Got possessed by the ghost of an ancient necromancer until you mastered enough of his dark power to oust him and reclaim your body. Inherited your father's magical bells. Stuff like that.
