Dracula was a novel by Human author Bram Stoker, first published on Earth in the year 1897. Dracula's title character is a vampire named Count Dracula, and both book and character became the basis and inspiration for numerous other literature and movies for years to follow.
Captain James T. Kirk recalled reading Dracula as a young boy, and being particularly frightened by the title character. In 2269, when Kirk met the vampire-like Ambassador Damu of Chiroptera, he recalled some of that fear. (TOS novel: Death's Angel)
