Williams was a noted fan of Warcraft 3 and World of Warcraft, and was rumoured to have a character on the Mannoroth server.
The new character models consist of a genie resembling Williams' role in Disney's Aladdin, a chap in braces who looks like the main character from Mork and Mindy, and a female model with male voice samples attached that's presumably a Mrs. Doubtfire reference.
The day after news of Williams' suicide broke and the fan petition was set up, Blizzard "@robinwilliams Thank you. You gave us so much joy in our lives, and we hope you enjoyed your time in our world. We’ll see you in-game.":
Since these models were found in Warlords of Draenor's code, presumably they'll go live when the expansion drops on November 13.
