That would be a "metaphysicist". A logician doesn't care anything about reality at all, rather merely consistency in the language of reasoning, much the same as a mathematician (logic applied to quantities).

If "the end" was merely a fantasy ontology, you would be right. But there is such a thing as a useful ontology. When an ontology isn't useful, because it doesn't represent reality sufficiently, it is ignored (or used merely for fictional stories).
And since your indirect implication is that RM:Affectance Ontology is merely a mental jigsaw puzzle, realize that RM:AO very precisely adheres to the observations of modern Science. The difference is only in the understanding of WHY physics works the way it does, thus extending to answer formerly unresolved questions (such as the Young Double Slit experiment).Rational Metaphysics
requires three fundamental things:
- 1) Coherent ontology (utilizing Definitional Logic for clarity)
- 2) Scientific methodology (to ensure the ontology tracks reality)
- 3) Resolution Debating (so as to ensure that nothing has been left out or mistaken).
All in all, it is more assured to be exactly and precisely true to reality than any form of science or religion has ever been.
