Mostly, Skyrim zombies live for 60 seconds, 360 seconds, or until killed (if I remember right).

But if they live longer than 1 minute, just add an 'Extended Duration' modifier. I feel like this should reduce the cost of Trigger rather than be a general enhancement (since Ally doesn't have a general duration). Something like:

Trigger: Dead Body (Rare & Illegal; Extended Duration, x30), -24%

The -24% comes from -60% (for a Rare/Illegal Trigger) modified by Extended Duration, x30's +60% converted into a limitation because it makes a disadvantage less disadvantagous (so converted into -60%), for a result of -60%*(1-0.6) = -24%.

If you don't want to bother with that, just keep the extended duration under x30 and you're good.
