There are obvious conflicts between characters; however, the central conflict is between man and his fears.  Dracula truly represents evil; he is an imposing character who is frightening in both appearance and in his deeds.  The other characters who come in contact with him realize how evil and frightening he is.  Everyone who comes in contact with him is intimidated and frightened by him.  However, Harker has seen too much of Dracula's evil and finds the courage to kill him once he chases him from England to Transylvania.
