The overall look of the plants seems to indicate Nitrogen and Iron deficiencies, maybe Sulfur too but then you have to ask why if you have other pepper plants growing in the same soil with the same PH, same nutrients, watering and all and they are much healthier. So is the stress induced by other factors?

All roots on transplants are not always bright white, some staining can occur from humic acids. Really dark roots can indicate root rot from pathogens like Pythium, but the health of the transplant above ground would have shown poor health symptoms too.

It's all speculation at this point.
