Inquiry: Two characters, which to keep?

This topic is related to skills, so I hope this is the right location.

I haven't been playing Eve for a long while (1+ year), and I've been skill training two characters the entire time. I no longer have a desire to keep two of them going (funds are also an issue), so I'm cutting one off. I have one character that's for PVE/PVP while the other one is a logi pilot (max mastery on ALL logi ships), nearly maxed on leadership skills, with some skills elsewhere.

I've put the API keys below for you to see their skills. I understand different characters are for different play types, but I'm interested in which one would be good for starting brand new when I finally get a new computer that can manage better than my current one. Would it be better for a brand new person to start with a PVE/PVP character (and no personal skills) or more of the other character?

I appreciate any input you can give!

I have a few lines of thought. Might help you decide.
I don't feel like loading up API's at the moment, but my thinking is probably about the same without looking at them.

Consider selling a character? Use the ISK to keep the other training, or as a start up fund when you come back.

Keep the character with the most SP, no matter what the SP is dedicated to.

Keep the PvE/PvP character. It has the ability to earn its own way later, and defend itself or fight for itself.

Don't forget to transfer all your assets and ISK to the account you keep.

If your Logi Chara is basically maxed anyways.. why not just plex it over to your other account? Sure you can't train it (unless you want to pay again or use plex), but then if you need the Logi you have it. That's my 2 cents

well the pve/pvp can continue on his own, the logi you could get involved in incursions if you want to make a lot of isk in a really short amount of time and do something with other people.

Post your characters on EVE-Board.

Posting API keys is frowned-upon by moderators, and none too convenient for anybody.

Sorry! I'm still pretty new at this.

Regardless, I've decided to sell this character. Thanks for the assistance!
