Blender rigging issue

My rigged mesh seems to be parented to the floor some how. Is this a common issue that anyone has a quick a solution for?
I’ve included a screenshot which shows the issue in Maximo and blender.

I’ve been leaning Blender for a few months and I feel like I’m always fighting fires. Please tell me it gets easier :slight_smile:

maybe it’s your root bone with a custom shape, what happens if you try to select? maybe share your armature?
