This sounds like C.S. Friedman's Coldfire trilogy.

The planet Erna has a psychic field called "the Fae" that can be influenced by people's thoughts, and powerfully by their unconscious fears, which makes the mists a place of nightmare for most people.

The energy is also sensitive to the human psyche, as the colonists discovered to their dismay. The Fae reacts to human cerebral activity, bringing to life dreams and manifesting fears. In fact, many of the first colonists were killed by Fae-constructs, demons and beasts that fed off of their human progenitors, both physically and mentally. It was only by a Great Sacrifice, the loss of all the technology and knowledge the colonists had brought with them, that humanity came to terms with the Fae, at least enough to learn a rudimentary level of control over the power.

The count (I'd probably call him a deuteragonist instead of a protagonist, really) is Gerald Tarant. Wikipedia describes him:

The Neocount of Merentha, the Prophet of the Church for Human Unification on Erna. He was a visionary, an individual who sought more adamant uses of the Fae to tame the planet, which was contrary to the Church's primary goal of rendering humans null to the Fae. He sacrifices his humanity to gain untold control over the Fae by murdering his wife and children in a dark ritual.
