This is a real world query. I am interested in knowing exactly how the Bohrok came to be. The story elements and design of the sets are integrated so smoothly, that I can't tell what came first, or if the sets were designed at the same time the story for them was being written. I know that for other sets (such as Mutran) the story had to be tweaked to match it's physical appearance (Mutran and Chirox both wearing a Shelek, for example.).
So was this true of the Bohrok, or was the process behind them different?
