Syousetsu Akumajou Dracula: Akuma no Chi Chi no Akumu

As described by the contributor, JPCVFAN: "Syousetsu Akumajou Dracula: Akuma no Chi Chi no Akumu Vol.1 (translated to mean Novel Demon Castle Dracula: Demon's Blood - Nightmare Blood Vol.1) was released by company Aspect in 1994. It was quickly discontinued and saw no other volumes." Shedding some insight into the novel's creation is the following postscript:

"I wanted to write a vampire novel.
However, the magazine editor demanded novelizing the video game.
I borrowed 'Dracula' and 'Simon' from Akumajou Dracula.
Still, the story is almost all my original creation. Sorry.
This novel is not a novelization of the video game."

Dean Silva:
He is a bishop. He becomes a missionary because of the Archbishop's instruction. He struggles between a "belief in God" and a "lover who became a vampire."
Elizabeth Arye:
She is a female priest and Dean's lover. She follows along when Dean travels. Her blood is ingested by a vampire, turning her into one of their kind. However, Simon Belmont believes that she is still alive.
Simon Belmondo:
Simon is considered a god by the villagers. He died many years ago but was somehow revived--that is, he fought against Dracula 200 or more years ago. His blood is a "nectar" for vampires, described as a "deadly poison of death."
Pierre Baiyan:
He is a self-styled alchemist and a criminal. He, too, travels with Dean, who tries to reform him. It is, however, by Pierre's doing that Dracula has been resurrected; he believes Dracula to be "God" and hopes by association to become a "Dark Lord."
Claude Runkle (Dracula):
A vampire and the vessel of Count Dracula. He was Simon's best friend before his possession.
Leesa Berenice:
She is a woman beloved by both Simon and Claude.
Cil Vink and Mary Fraise:
A pair of villagers and victims of a vampire attack. They are destroyed by Dean.
