Weird Coincidence: Ryo Itoya/Spider Fangire and Santiago from the Vampire Chronicles?

While watching Kamen Rider Kiva, forced as this is but I think Ryo Itoya aka the Spider Fangire does share resemblance with Santiago from the Vampire Chronicles series or from the Interview with the Vampire movie. Both are creepy buffoons who are very playful with their victims.  Coincidence?  Most likely since I doubt it that Toshiki Inoue was reading the Vampire Chronicles when he wrote this.  He was probably playing Castlevania and watching Danny Phantom (dubbed in Japanese) with his family instead of reading the Vampire Chronicles.  But there is the creepy similarity I can't deny in this forced comparsion.  And also, both failed to kiss the human women they intended to kiss too.
