Question about English (US)

Why isn't there an article in this sentence "Yet he is lord of all the animals."? This is from the book Animal Farm, below is the context:

Man is the only creature that consumes without producing. He does not give milk, he does not lay eggs, he is too weak to pull the plough, he cannot run fast enough to catch rabbits. Yet he is lord of all the animals. He sets them to work, he gives back to them the bare minimum that will prevent them from starving, and the rest he keeps for himself.

I would say "Yet he is THE lord of all the animals." instead.
