Eriond: Garion let him take over caring for Horse!

Lois: Her smartphone. It was a sign of You Are Old Enough and also will become important. (BTW this will totally change later on.)

Evelyn: When her girlfriend got her a new staff much more suited to her!

R2: Honestly? When Anakin began the habit of never wiping him. It gives him his whole existence, ultimately.

Anakin: Padme married him. (Is there a theme here? Yes there is.)

Tavi: Other than the umbrellas of "Every time Max and Ehren trust, protect, and have fun with him," "basically everything Kitai does although especially giving up her going with the Horse clan for his life although she kind of had no real choice in that," "every time someone loses will-saves and is loyal to him," I think there are three contenders.
1) When Isana finally, finally talks about his father (and to a lesser degree Araris, both in the reveal and discussing him later.)
2) Doroga deciding to help at Second Calderon and thus establishing that whole alliance. He could have just gone away. But he did.
3) Gaius Sextus gave him trust--enough, ultimately, to trust him with Alera.

Actually that last is kind of a crap deal, he has a lifetime of wrangling and worrying and occasional over-working and already a few wars and treason and politics ahead of him. Thanks, Granddad?

In the Bar, there might be another option: when Alanna gave him Copper Isles Red Griffin tea and stew.
